The City of Round Rock, Texas is considering building an urban lift system similar to the one found in Rio de Janeiro (Gondolas in Rio de Janeiro?). The city, which is located outside of Austin, is looking to alleviate traffic by building “ski lifts” to connect people to different points of the city. Designer Michael McDaniel says that, “The ball park is $12 million a mile or up, but when you take that compared to the current proposed light rail here in Austin estimates for that are a $100 million a mile.”
