way locals travel between La Paz and neighbouring El Alto. Shuffling 3000 people between the
two locations every hour, the cable cars have cut commute times down from 1 hour to just 10 minutes; a
significant difference to La Paz’s long suffering commuters. Travel costs have also been reduced with a one
way cable car ticket costing only 3 bolivianos compared to the 5 bolivianos charged for a one way bus
