The cable car is essential and shortens travel times • This is according to a survey conducted at the time of its shutdown

(lives here in Chabatz) - The travel time of 67% of the passengers, who are used to traveling by cable car, was extended by more than 20 minutes, while it was disabled, and the travel time of 32% of the passengers was extended by even half an hour. Which explains its importance as a vital means of transportation in the Haifa area.


The importance of the cable car as a means of transportation and even its operation on Shabbat is often discussed. A survey conducted by Orien Saburai, a representative of the "Haifa Cable Car Updates" WhatsApp community reinforces these words.

The survey was conducted following claims made in the group and in discussion at the Technion and the University of Haifa, during the shutdown of the cable car in April 2023, during school hours and with two weeks' notice for maintenance work.

This is the means of public transportation that many students and faculty members rely on to get to the campuses. Even though the operating company announced that the cable car was suspended in the media and despite the fact that the Ministry of Transportation prepared and will strengthen lines 142 and 146, the survey shows that the users of the cable car were harmed.

The survey was conducted among 206 passengers, by answering questions published through a file distributed on social networks on campuses. The survey shows that the travel time of 67% of the passengers was extended by more than 20 minutes, the time of 32% of the passengers by more than half an hour. This is in addition to the damage to the frequency due to the low frequency of The buses in relation to the cable car. It also shows that the public transportation system was awarded a score of 2.25 out of 5 compared to 4.1 when the cable car is operating, a decrease of 45%. 30% of the respondents answered that the accessibility of the information about the shutdown was not good.

The survey editors reached the following conclusions and recommend:

  • that the maintenance works will be coordinated during semester breaks.
  • There is a need for a more comprehensive transportation reinforcement, the reinforcement should be based on a broad transportation survey among cable car passengers.
  • It is possible to improve the accessibility of the information regarding the nature of the reinforcements and the time of shutdown, suggestions made are lists
  • Distribution by email/sms/whatsapp, rollups at the stations - about a month before the shutdown.

  1. Shhh 206 passengers. There is no doubt that this is a very, very essential means of transportation. It's a shame you didn't include the data regarding the number of passengers in the article.

  2. You can argue a lot about the feasibility and the location, but the cable car already exists and is used by thousands a week. The survey was indeed in a sample group of active users, not "fans". Following the basic internet survey, an in-depth survey of professionals is carried out, the results of which have not yet been published.

  3. A survey conducted by Orien Saburai, a representative of the "Haifa Cable Car Updates" WhatsApp community....
    A. The survey was conducted in a group of users and not in the general population
    B. Travel time increased - if there were traffic lights on Dori Road and between the upper parking lot of the university and the Technion, it would be shorter just like the cable car
    third. Therefore, it is not clear what these scores are, what sample this represents - a closed group of cable car fans... we'll call it an exaggeration.
    As long as it is not a professional party conducting surveys and testing real alternatives, there is no need to come out with misleading headlines.
    Regarding the economic viability - the cable car runs most of the day and a large part of the year completely empty.
    After only 11 months, it was already shut down in the middle of the school year for maintenance and is not active for many days in the winter in Rehovot.
    so hi,
    Enough with mind engineering

  4. Has the economic viability of the cable car also been tested?
    The survey was conducted only among those who use it, it is clear that from the beginning it is used by those who are paying for it.
    But what about the habit of the city's residents who have no need for it except for occasional tourism purposes?
