Aerial tramway transportation

At Cal y Mayor Group, we are pioneers in the implementation of aerial tramway transport systems in Mexico and South America. We are capable of contributing in each stage of a cable tramway project, from planning, design, structuring, construction management, to implementation and upkeep. Aerial tramway systems promote a sustainable mobility and an improved road communication in places with high population density and low accessibility.

Public transportation services give people the mobility necessary for everyday activities: work, education, commerce, recreation, etc.; all of this at a low cost while encouraging social equity, shorter commutes, reliable service, improved security, lower contaminant emissions, and lower investment and maintenance costs.
