The incoming secretary said cable cars running about five to ten kilometers from Pasig City to EDSA and Makati City might help decongest roads.
Tugade said that the use of cable cars, which has 35 passenger capacity, is definitely being studied.
The idea was borrowed from a Bolivia experience where there are cable cars, he said.
“Kaya ko ho naisipan iyan, again, hindi ko ho orihinal ‘to. Mayroon hong mga nag-suggest niyan ‘pag nag-dagdag tayo ng kalsada at nag-construct tayo e lalong makakatrapik kung gusto mo ng additional capacity, pumunta ka sa itaas,” he said.
(The manufacturer of the cable cars which constructed those in Bolivia or Bugota is already in contact with me, so I am already deciding where we would build it. My suggestion is that we would have cable cars not only as a means of transportation but also for scenic purposes.)
