Second Cable Liner Shuttle opened in Las Vegas

The new APM built by Doppelmayr Cable Car (DCC) is the main means of transport for the CityCenter mega-project.

At 8 p.m. local time on Wednesday, 16 December 2009, the biggest privately financed property development project in the USA opened in the form of the Las Vegas CityCenter. An integral part of this mega-project is a Cable Liner Shuttle supplied by DCC Doppelmayr Cable Car, a subsidiary of the Doppelmayr-Garaventa group.

DCC handled the project for an APM (automated people mover) as a local public transport system in collaboration with the MGM Mirage group. The value of the contract for DCC was about USD 66 million (EUR 45 million).

After a construction period of only about three years, the huge buildings that make up the new CityCenter in Las Vegas opened their doors. The complex, which cost a total of about USD 8 billion to build, comprises 2800 luxury apartments and three hotel casinos with 5000 bedrooms and over 44,000 square meters of floor space for shopping malls, restaurants and function rooms. And they are all served by the DCC Cable Liner Shuttle.

The new Cable Liner, which has a rated capacity of 3,000 pphd (persons per hour and direction), links the existing MGM Mirage hotel casinos Monte Carlo and Bellagio with a mid-line station at the heart of the CityCenter. The first Cable Liner Shuttle in Las Vegas, the Mandalay Bay Tram, was installed for the same client in 1998 and since then has carried no fewer than 250 million passengers in safety and comfort. “This is convincing proof that the market is more than willing to invest in a system that combines simplicity, reliability and short project handling periods with the competence, flexibility and performance capacity of the dynamic DCC team,” says DCC’s CEO Stephan Wabnegger.
