The majority of all passenger ropeways worldwide are used for leisure and tourism sectors. However, since the end of the 20th century, the number of public transport installations in urban environments has been increasing. During the last couple years, the successful implementation of ropeway systems in Latin America has highlighted the advantages and capabilities offered by cable cars in urban settings. Urban ropeway stations must be adapted to meet the design and equipment standards for public transportation. Unlike subway, light-rail, tram or bus systems, there are very few standards available for urban ropeways. Due to different system characteristics, it is not always practical to apply design norms common to other means of transport. Ropeway systems allow both the formation of transport networks and the creation of intermodal hubs, where they function as a feeder service or service extension to other transport lines. This thesis explores the challenges and limitations in the planning process of intermodal ropeway junctions. In particular, it examines the subsequent integration of cable lines into existing transport hubs. At the outset, four research questions are defined and the structure of the thesis is explained. Following this, a description of the main ropeway systems and a brief overview of urban ropeway history is given. The known requirements of station and junction design for different transport systems are summarized in a literature review of academic material and industrial standards and regulations. Differences and similarities are highlighted and the applicability of the named recommendations to other means of transport is discussed. Afterwards, real life examples of intermodal hubs, where subway or light-rail and cable car meet, are examined. It is discussed whether and how the requirements have been satisfied and how site-related limitations have been taken into account. With this knowledge, the conceptual design of an intermodal ropeway junction as part of a fictional project is drafted. Based on this design example it is demonstrated how the integration of a ropeway line can be achieved within an existing transport hub and with respect to site-related constraints. Using these methods (literature review, study of examples and draft of a design project), answers to the initial research questions can be formulated and conclusions and recommendations on general planning standards are introduced to the reader. Numerous measures within station and junction design can facilitate a better acceptance of ropeway systems as a means of public transport in urban environments. However, site-related limitations do not allow a generalised application of these measures. Consequently, individual solutions and compromises are often required at existing transport hubs.
