"The gondola would ferry about 6,000 people per hour; cabs with a capacity of 30-35 would make a three-minute trip of less than a mile along Washington Street in Oakland, linking the BART station at 12th and Washington to Jack London Square. The gondola would transport an estimated 1 million people per year," according to Slusser's explanation.
The team also hopes the gondola would also be a tourist attraction in of itself, busy on non-game days.
