Document Description
The Los Angeles Aerial Rapid Transit Project would connect Los Angeles Union Station (LAUS) to the Dodger Stadium property via an aerial gondola system in downtown Los Angeles. The proposed 1.2-mile route would travel generally along Alameda Street, Spring Street, and Bishops Road from LAUS to Dodger Stadium, with an intermediate station at the southernmost entrance of the Los Angeles State Historic Park. The proposed aerial gondola system would include aerial cables, passenger stations, a non-passenger junction, towers to support the aerial cables between the stations/junction, and gondola cabins for the passengers. When complete, the proposed Project would have a maximum capacity of approximately 5,000 people per hour per direction, and the travel time from LAUS to Dodger Stadium would be approximately seven minutes.
