The gondola plans floated for L.A.’s most famous hillsides
No single solution will “solve” L.A. traffic, but we can still look above the pavement for some creative alternatives. Yes, we’re talking about a gondola—two of them, actually. This fall, the Griffith Park Aerial Transit Study released the four potential routes that could shuttle tourists from a parking lot in the Valley to a perch near the Hollywood Sign in mere minutes. And around the same time, Los Angeles Aerial Rapid Transit and Metro unveiled two alignments for its plans for a gondola from Union Station to Dodger Stadium.
