Prairie Sky Gondola

Recently topic changed from the Prairie Link High Speed Rail to "Prairie Sky Gondola".

The Prairie Sky Gondola project consists of five experiential and commercially programmed urban gondola stations that connect Downtown Edmonton, West Rossdale, and Old Strathcona on a 2.5km ropeway alignment. Each of these stations serve the needs of urban commuters, river valley users, and tourists alike. The alignment itself is above existing roads and preserved greenspace - it does not restrict private commercial development. In fact, it enables it while aligning with many existing City plans, projects, and priorities.

Prairie Sky will provide a cost-effective utility for urban commuters that complements existing Edmonton Transit Services infrastructure while establishing an experiential tourism asset in the city’s core. It will also provide a new way for those in the region to experience Edmonton’s river valley, the largest urban park in Canada. 

The project becomes a platform for meaningful reconciliation with Indigenous Peoples.  Prairie Sky views the opportunity to contribute to improving social and economic outcomes for Indigenous Peoples, as well as sharing their story in an experiential way, as central to this project.
