The Palm Springs Tramway's closure has been extended an extra week. The tramway is now scheduled to reopen on October 11, 2021.
Original Report 8/30/21:
Labor Day will be the last day for people to ride the Palm Springs Aerial Tramway for nearly a month while it is closed for annual maintenance, it was announced today.
The Palm Springs Aerial Tramway will cease operations Sept. 7 to roughly Oct. 4 for track rope repositioning, changing of pendant ropes and mechanical and electrical testing.
"We regret the inconvenience our annual maintenance shutdown causes our guests, but since we run seven-days-a-week year-round, this time allows us to complete projects we cannot do when we are open to the public,'' Tramway
General Manager Nancy Nichols said.
The Oct. 4 reopening day is a tentative date, according to the company.
