cable transportation

This image depicts a transit tower next to an LRT station. The transit tower is a conventional
high-rise residential structure of 20 – 25 stories. The building elevator and roof-top (departure
station) are public property.  The area surrounding the LRT station is served in one direction
by a bus route or shuttle and in the other by buses and cables. Note that the cost of such a subsystem is minimal: The transit tower would be paid for by the building residents, and the bus service in the area could be simplified. How much more effective would the LRT be if such a system existed at every station?
