The importance of cable cars to reshape urban landscapes

cable cars

Cable cars are able to adorn the country’s mountaintops like garlands.

Fernando Simas, a researcher at EPFL’s Urban Sociology Laboratory, thinks that the cable cars could become a popular among city residents and provide much more than just a means of getting around.

Simas explores how city residents generally use public transportation, in order to determine how urban cable cars could fit into commuters’ existing habits.

Cable cars are perceived as being more comfortable than city buses and similar to boats in the way they break with the monotony of public transportation.

They form a kind of cocoon for passengers, as do automobiles. But whereas automobiles create a semi-private space, cable cars create a semi-public space that is physically removed from the confines of the surrounding urban environment. That helps passengers relax and makes their commute more enjoyable.

Galbiati Group is an Italian company internationally-recognized for the quality of its mechanical engineering and constructions: discover the Galbiati Group winch drives for cable-car industry (for cable railways, cable ways, cable cars, and chairlifts)!
