Gondola to Simon Fraser gains traction with TransLink

Simon Fraser University students’ daydreams of taking a gondola to school have found a foothold at TransLink.

Simon Fraser University students’ daydreams of taking a gondola to school have found a foothold at TransLink.

The transportation company has made an open call for a company to assess the possibility of running a gondola — similar to Whistler-Blackcomb’s Peak 2 Peak — from Production Way Station to the SFU campus on Burnaby Mountain.

The project could move ahead if the report “shows something that will work better, both in terms of travel time, reliability, and passenger moving capacity, especially if it can be done at a better cost per passenger,” said Ken Hardie, director of communications for TransLink.

The chosen company would complete their assessment by March of next year.
