An aerial lift is a means of transportation in which cabins, cars, gondolas or open chairs are hauled above the ground by means of one or more cables.

     An aerial lift is a means of transportation in which cabins, cars, gondolas or open chairs are hauled above the ground by means of one or more cables.

Types of aerial lifts include:

    Aerial tramway, with fixed cable(s) (track ropes) that support two cabins and another cable (haul rope) that propels the cabins.

    Gondola lift, a loop of cable moving in one direction with several gondolas attached to the cable.

    Bicable and tricable Gondola lifts, where the gondolas are suspended on one or two track ropes and moved by the haul rope forming a loop.

    Pulsed movement gondola lifts (monocable or bicable gondola fixed grip pulsed), with a group of gondolas fixed to the haul rope. The gondolas are not detachable.

    Funitel, with two moving loops of cable which support gondolas (gondolas attach to two cables each).

    Funifor, two guide cables for suspending the gondola, with a haul cable to pull the cabin along the cables. Unlike an aerial tramway each cabin possesses its own bull wheels, engines and cables which allows each cabin to operate independently.

Other types include:

    Chairlift, with a moving loop of cable with chairs permanently attached to the cable.

    Detachable chairlift, a loop of cable moving at high speed, with chairs that can be clipped onto the cable at either station.

    Aerial lift is also a proper term used in industry for mechanical devices used to elevate workers. Also referred to as manlifts.

    MEWPs (Mobile elevated work platforms), cherry pickers, and bucket trucks.Aerial lift systems are frequently employed in mountainous territory where roads are relatively difficult to build and use, and have seen extensive use in mining.

    Aerial lift systems are relatively easy to move, and are and have been used to cross rivers and ravines. In more recent times, the cost-effectiveness and flexibility of aerial lifts has seen an increase of gondola lift being integrated into urban public transport systems.
