Tram Planning: A Tale of 2 Cities

Here's a couple of different emergency systems for when a tram car becomes stuck. The first two pictures are from New York during the Roosevelt Island Tram rescue.



Next we have a picture of the Portland way.

You know those press conferences where some official drinks the water to try and prove it's safe? How about our City Council demonstrating this rescue system for us? I mean it's their plan, isn't it?

No, it's not. The City has undertaken multiple rescue scenario practice runs, already. And our high-angle rescue responders are second to none.

Love it!!!

I must remember to wear fishnets if I ever feel reckless enough to ride the tram.
