The Smart Urban Transport

The Smart Urban Transport

As a result of urbanization traffic congestions and pollution are increasing at alarming rates we are desperately looking for alternative -smart- means of transport that at the same time allow us to take a break from a stressful working day.

OiER, LEITNER ropeways and U4SSC are organizing the "Smart Urban Transport" side event after the first day of the Smart City Wolrd EXPO congress in Barcelona.

Therefor we want to invite you on 19 November, 2019 to an unforgettable experience.

Come with us and enjoy an exceptional evening high above Barcelona, starting at 6:00 pm. We will take you on a relaxing ride with our unique urban cable car to the top of Montjuic.

Furthermore, we are very happy to be the hosts of the evening and to share best practice in development, construction and operation of urban ropeway installations.

After the visit of our detachable ropeway, we like to exchange and listen to your ideas of alternative means of transport during a traditional Catalonian dinner at a Restaurant near Mount Montjuic.

About LEITNER ropeways:

What started with the founding of the company over 130 years ago is still moving people across the world. LEITNER ropeways systems are the best possible mobility solutions for the most diverse requirements thanks to their unique attributes. This is because as one of the world’s leading developers and producers of ropeway transport systems – LEITNER ropeways uses a tried and tested successful concept which impresses customers time and again. This is due to maximum comfort as well as development of modern technologies and continuous work to produce innovations and high-quality product design.

Away from the mountains the ropeway is celebrating a real highlight as a means of transport in an urban area. In 2016 for instance, LEITNER ropeways attracted attention with its construction of a system in Mexico City. The first urban ropeway system in the country consists of two gondola lifts and is helping to solve traffic problems in the densely populated Ecatepec de Morelos district of the capital.

In addition to the major benefits of a public transport the gondola lift makes an impression in cities as a tourist infrastructure facility. Since April 2018, a 10-passenger gondola lift brings tourists and local residents directly from the center of Bosnia’s capital quickly and comfortably to the 1,160 meter summit of Trebević. In Turkey, a reversible aerial tramway runs from the tourist destination Beșikdüzü to the panoramic mountain Beșikdağ. Thanks to the construction of the new aerial tramway, the tourism region just 40 km from the provincial capital Trabzon will now boast a star attraction visible from far.

The “Gardens of the World” ropeway, which was constructed at the time of the International Garden Exhibition in Berlin in 2017, is also an impressive actual example of successful urban and tourist use of LEITNER ropeways products.

Be our guest and enjoy a unique evening in a relaxed atmosphere in Barcelona.
