Group Description

Cable-Propelled Transit (CPT) isn't just for ski-hills anymore. Cities around the world are increasingly looking towards this ancient technology as a low-cost high-value method of achieving their transit goals.

This, then, is a place to learn about Cable-Propelled Transit (CPT); including funiculars, cable cars, gondolas, aerial trams, ropeways, people movers, cable liners, etc.

If it is propelled by a cable, and it belongs in a city, it belongs here.
