cable railway

Wellington's only claim to urban transport fame is a .6 km
cable railway.

Tranz Rail has in the past indicated an interest in being part of a
proposed LRT that would run over "the old" Johnsonville line into downtown Courtney Place, with another possible extension to Wellington International Airport. A light rail airport link is also being considered. Finally, Wellington has it's own tramway museum featuring a 2 km Kapiti Coast Electric Tramway ride through Queen Elizabeth Park.
