Port-au-Prince Haiti Metrocable Transport System Proposed

MetroCable Aerial Tramway Transportation System in Haiti?
Imagine that... Riding above the streets and hills of Port-au-Prince Haiti on a MetroCable aerial tramway bypassing all the traffic below... The same company who built the aerial tramway in New York City, linking Roosevelt Island to Manhattan, has just proposed a MetroCable transport system for Port-au-Prince Haiti to the ministry of Finance...

This metrocable system, proposed by POMA, is already being used succesfully in Medellin, Colombia, a city surrounded by hills just like Port-au-Prince and it is working like a charm.

Many of those hills are home to underdeveloped barrios (comunas), which due to their location cannot be reached by Medellín's biggest mass transportation system Metro. so they use metrocable to trasport in and out.

Watch this video and see how it works in Columbia...

Port-au-Prince traffic is crazy, it takes hours to drive one mile some times...

What do you think about a MetroCable transport system for Port-au-Prince Haiti?

Caridad Hilaire It is a wonderful idea, and a necessity. We just have to teach people to keep them clean, and not trash them.
