The Emirates Air-Line Cable Car is the first of its kind to be in UK.
The system spans over the river Thames and links the Royal Victoria Docks (for London’s ExCel Exhibition Centre) in the North and North Greenwich (The O2 Arena) in the South.
The journey time is estimated to be just 5 minutes, using one of the 34 cabins.
Service frequency will be every 30-40 seconds and it is estimated that 2,500 people can be carried over the Thames in a space of an hour.
The system is fully accessible for those in wheelchairs and cyclists as bicycles are permitted to be carried on-board the system. Oyster and Contactless Cards can be used on the system - More information on tickets can be found here.
The project was completed in late June 2012.
