El Paso's favorite tramway complex could be brought back to life if plans go as planned. El Pasoans sure have missed having the Wyler Aerial Tramway for quite some time now. The Wyler Aerial Tramway was our escape from city noise and a place to find peace.

The Wyler Aerial Tramway had been around for quite some time until they shut it down. Despite passing its annual inspections the tram's longevity went further than expected and was shut down. They shut down Wyler Aerial Tramway was closed off in September 2018.

I am so glad I got the chance to experience the ride up to the peak of the Franklin Mountains then. Hell, there are some people who have lived in El Paso all their lives and never had the chance to experience a ride on the Wyler Aerial Tramway. This kind of scenic view is rare because you can see how it looks down here from up there.

Well, after the long break that the Wyler Aerial Tramway has had, some good news sprang about. It looks like we can see a positive change for this El Paso attraction. Texas Parks and Wildlife Department is working along with The Camino Real Regional Mobility Authority to revive the Wyler Aerial Tramway.

There have been some new ideas about the project that would include some changes that seem exciting. The cost to revive Wyler Aerial Tramway is estimated to be between $24 to $28 million. If you want more specific details about the project for Wyler Aerial Tramway just click here.
