More about

The project

With 6 lines in service, it is an international benchmark, and the network of gondola lifts now stretches over 14 kilometres, directly connected to the different lines of the Medellín Metro by multimodal stations. Each year, more than 220 million people use the city's transport system, demonstrating a successful social inclusion model that offers a new quality of life to the city's residents through social connections and increasingly attractive neighbourhoods.

At the heart of the Medellín Metro public transport system, Line P has a direct connection to Line A of the Metro at the ACEVEDO station, the intermodal hub from which the first Metrocable also departs. Line P connects some 200,000 residents in north-west Medellín through 4 stations along a 2700 m line located near the public library, medical centres, a community police station, landscaped parks and playgrounds for children. Some of these infrastructures were created after the new line project and have given the district a new lease on life !

POMA, innovation

for the project

A sustainable mobility solution

Line P transports 4000 passengers every hour, and all with minimal environmental impact. To that end, it has the first gearless green motor technology–DirectDrive–built in, making it low on both energy consumption and sound pollution.

A reliable flow management system

As the world’s first 12-person cable car, Line P comes with DIAMOND 10/12 cabins that combine 10 seated spaces with 2 standing spaces: a perfect solution for rush hour !

Operational and maintenance support

The cabins and stations were made in France, at POMA group industrial facilities. The towers were produced in Colombia and installed in Medellín in close cooperation with POMA Colombia, the local subsidiary created by POMA that provides trustworthy support to MetroMedellín in operating and maintaining the system.
