Overhead Cable Car across the Ottawa River


Recommended Posts

I would begin by commending fellow group member Mike for starting the discussion about the proposed Ottawa - Gatineau tram:

How about an overhead cable tramway across the Ottawa River? New York City has such a technology. On the Ottawa side, a terminus just west of the Chateau Laurier Hotel with cable route above the Rideau Canal extending across to Laurier in Gatineau. Another possible route between Place du Portage office tower and Wellington. 

A possible route would follow next to the Prince of Wales railway bridge and connect between near Bayview LRT station and St Joseph Blvd in Gatineau. Perhaps some examination of overhead cable tramcars would be fruitful
