aerial tramway

An aerial tramway is a type of aerial lift with one or two cabins fixed to a cable. The distinguishing feature of aerial tramways is that the cabins shuttle back and forth between the end stations of the lift in a reversible manner. Aerial tramways are usually built with three steel wire ropes - two for support and one for propulsion. (This is the same rope configuration used by 3S gondola lifts, but 3S lifts operate with continuous circulation and have detachable cabins).
