Two LEITNER ropeways gondola lifts have been running on a five kilometer route through the densely populated district Ecatepec de Morelos in Mexico’s largest city since October 2016. Mexico’s first urban ropeway is in operation for 17 hours a day, carrying 17,000 people. For the inhabitants and visitors of Ecatepec de Morelos, this connection means a considerably easier and improved quality of life.
“For the Ecatepec and La Cañada areas in Mexico, this ropeway represents a clean, ecological and modern solution. Instead of wasting hours of their lives in traffic jams, passengers can reach the main transport connections to the center of Mexico City far faster.”- Paul M. Abed - Project manager at Consorcio aristos S.A.B. de C.V., license holder for the ropeway project
