Mexico City Cable Car – level 1

10-03-2021 15:00

Mexico City has its first cable car. A cable car is a system of cabins. They hang on a cable. People sit inside. They travel up and down a hill or mountain.

The cable car is in a rocky part of the city. People live far from the city center. The journey to work or school is very long for them.

They can get to the metro in the cable car. People can travel much faster. The cable car has five stations. Ten people can sit in one cabin. The cable car can carry about 96,000 people every day.

People are very happy. The cable car changes their lives.

Difficult words: cabin (a small place where travelers stay or move from one place to another), journey (a trip from one place to another), metro (an underground train).

You can watch the original video in the Level 3 section.
