Just like every other downtown city Austin transportation has always been challenging with traffic congestion, etc. Are gondolas in Austin the answer to our traffic woes? Frog Design recently presented a solution at a California conference that proposes building a cable car system (gondolas) that would transport Austinites across the city. Not only would the creating of Austin gondolas be over $20 million cheaper than surface rails and over $380 million cheaper than a subway, it would also circumvent many of the right-of-way problems and the cable cars could travel over natural barriers (.e.g. Barton Creek, Lady Bird Lake) without any problems.
