The gondola transportation system in La Paz, Bolivia has been an enormous success. Just last week the system set a new all-time record of passengers across the network @ 583,841. That is more people than the entire population of Atlanta, Georgia.
Construction of the first part of the cable car system started in July, 2012. The cable cars have proven to be a great alternative to crowded buses for locals and tourists alike. They are accessible to everyone, as all Mi Teleférico stations have elevators for the elderly or disabled. Cars leave the station every 12 seconds and run 17 hours per day (5am-10pm).
Yesterday was an incredible day for @miteleferico, by several events that caused us to break the daily record of passengers across the Network. Our previous record was 406,467 and yesterday we reached 583,841 passengers. Thank you all for trusting in our service.
