The gondolas from Union Station to Dodger stadium took another step forward

Urbanize LA:

After a marathon hearing, Metro's Board of Directors has voted to approve the construction of an aerial gondola system connecting the Dodger Stadium parking lots with Los Angeles Union Station continue - but with a laundry list of conditions.


According to an environmental study conducted for the project, maximum capacity on the gondola system is estimated to be 5,000 passengers per hour. Cabins would travel at a speed of approximately 13.4 miles per hour with headways of 23 seconds, leading to an end-to-end trip of seven minutes. The study forecasted that construction could commence as early as 2024 and conclude within 25 months.
