Mexico City Cable Car – level 2

10-03-2021 15:00

Mexico City started its first cable car system for people who travel to work and school. The system is nearly nine kilometers long, and it will have five stations.

One cabin can carry ten people, and the cable car can carry about 48,000 people every day in each way. The system serves a rocky area which is far from the city center, and it will connect local people to the metro system.

Local people are very happy and they say that it will change their lives. The system saves a lot of time and it is friendly to the environment. An Austrian company made the system, and it made cable cars in 80 countries in the world.

Difficult words: cable car (a system of cabins which hang on a cable and they move up mountains or hills), serve (to do a task or work for somebody, metro (an underground train).
