10 thousand citizens benefited from Şentepe Yenimahalle cable car, the first public transportation cable car in Turkey, which was built by Ankara Metropolitan Municipality in just 150 days.

In the morning and evening hours due to the exit and return due to an intensive demand of the cable car, during the daytime is not empty and is used both for transportation purposes and tourist purposes.
Passengers who travel to Ankara in the 10 cabin, where all the possibilities of technology are used for a comfortable, safe and fast safe journey, travel to Ankara as a flight, the passengers also record these moments with their mobile phones from time to time.
In particular, the ropeway staff, who are faced with great interest of children, do not take the children under the age of 12 to the ropeway without their families.
