A transit company has proposed to construct a gondola system that would help make travel easier for fans wanting to get to Dodger Stadium.

Aerial Rapid Transit Technologies has submitted a proposal to LA's Office of Extraordinary Innovation to build a $125 million gondola to carry 5,000 fans an hour to and from the stadium. It would take passengers five minutes by air from Los Angeles Union Station to Dodger Stadium. On Thursday, L.A. Mayor Eric Garcetti announced the proposal at a Metropolitan Transportation Authority meeting. Metro officials are considering the aerial tram proposal; if approved, the lift system could be running by 2022.
