Aerial Tramway An aerial tramway is a special type of aerial transport, usually, we know it like ropeway or cable car, and sometimes erroneously called as a gondola. Aerial tramway is a aerial system, the passenger cabins are connected by a one or more fixed cables. The fixed cables give support for the cabins. The ropes are solidly connected to the tramway. The aerial tramway is elevated or transported by the support cables. The haulage cable is generally driven by an electric motor and being connected to the cabins, moves them up or down the mountain.
