The Emirates Air Line Cable Car an Innovative, Urban Transportation System

The Emirates Air Line is an innovative, urban and new transport link for London. It is the first urban cable car system of its kind in the UK, providing a unique river crossing linking two key destinations. The cable car connects local communities with its 34 gondolas, improves access to visitor destinations and speeds up river crossings. It will also encourage further regeneration at The Royal Docks and Greenwich Peninsula. The cable car is owned and operated by Dockland Light Railway Limited (DLR), a part of the TfL network. Emirates is the Scheme Sponsor in a 10 year sponsorship deal. The operation is a unique partnership of world class companies. Each has committed to strive for the highest standards in its industry sector. The combined expertise of TfL, MaceMacro, Doppelmayr Cable Car, Continuum, CUK and Easy Clean is focused on making the Emirates Air Line a unique experience for London and not just a service.
