Chicago’s Proposed Aerial Cable Car System

While some cities are considering self-driving pods or improved water ferry routes (like Singapore and NYC respectively), Chicago is looking to the sky to transport its citizens. Architecture firms Davis Brody Bond and Marks Barfield have just unveiled plans for a series of sky-bound cable cars that would move passengers between the city’s architectural landmarks—from Wacker Drive on the west to Navy Pier on the east with stops in between. The proposed system would carry up to 3,000 people per hour 17 stories above the ground. Head to Design Boom to learn more.
