New mobility concepts
The rapid pace of urbanisation presents huge challenges for cities. There is a growing awareness for environmental protection, inclusion and infrastructure. This development affects residents, commuters and visitors just as much as decision-makers. As a major factor influencing economic growth and quality of life, the need for mobility calls for new concepts, in particular when it comes to traffic management.
Supplementary means of transport–such as ropeways–fulfill essential functions for innovative mobility concepts, such as: significant time savings in daily traffic, minimal use of land and resources and an integrated mobility solution for everyone, to name just a few.
The versatility, variety and possibilities that ropeways offer illustrate La Paz’s ropeway network. As a key part of a multimodal transport system, the ropeway stands for mobility in an independent dimension, the next level of mobility.About this Content
