Opened in 2014, the world's highest and longest urban cable car system whisks locals and tourists alike over the city at 4,000 metres above sea level. Far from a mere tourist attraction, the 443 cars are an active and crucial part of the city's transportation system. Currently operating over three different lines (several more are planned), they ferry up to 6,000 passengers an hour between the main city and El Alto, the poorer and more indigenous part of La Paz. As well as affording stunning views of the city and the surrounding mountains, the project is intended to reduce the social and economic gulf between the different classes and ethnic groups, by dramatically increasing the mobility of those living in El Alto.
