Los Angeles is looking into gondolas as a means to unclog two of the city’s most trafficked landmarks: Dodger Stadium and the Hollywood sign.

In Griffith Park, LA city officials are currently investigating four different plans to see where a gondola could take off from and land. The plans are facing resistance, however, from residents and environmentalists who are concerned about the gondola’s effect on the area’s flora and fauna.  

At Dodger Stadium, plans are further in the future. The gondola would help to take cars off the road and alleviate some of the crowding to get into the stadium.

Today on AirTalk, we’re learning more about what gondolas could mean for the city. Questions? Comments? Call us at 866-893-5722.
