Likoni cable cars will boost tourism, reduce traffic jams
The key challenge facing the tourism sector is over- reliance on a narrow product range. There is an urgent need to diversify by introducing new systems such as the cable cars. This will help reduce overcrowding and erratic services of the ferry at the Likoni channel because they will easily cross using the cable car system run by the Kenya Ferry Services.The service linking Mombasa Island and the south mainland is expected to reduce the long traffic jams and boost tourism in the South Coast by providing pedestrians with an alternative and in the process, reduce delays. This idea by the KFS to introduce this system by March next year is amazing and a great boost to local tourism . It will only charge Sh20 during off peak hours and Sh50 during peak hours. The cable car will have a capacity of 10,000 passengers per hour on both directions. A trip that normally takes 10 minutes will now take only two minutes.
