"A gondola running between downtown and Weber State University would cost about $30 million, a bargain compared to building a light rail line, according to a study commissioned by Ogden officials...The cost of either route compares favorably with building a light-rail system, which cost Salt Lake City's TRAX system as much as $23 million for a single mile.

[Ogden Mayor Matthew Godfrey] likes the novelty factor, which he believes would attract more riders than the bus system."
