[:RU]The world’s largest urban cable car system[:]

[:RU]The city of La Paz in Bolivia long struggled with the problems of transport. Steep terrain, high-density development turned the movement through the narrow streets into a nightmare for drivers and passengers of minibuses and private taxis.

To solve the problem, in the past two years, the government is building the world’s largest system of urban cableways. Currently, the city of La Paz has three urban cable car lines stretching over 10 kilometers.
