Old cable car just keeps rusting away

The old cable car

Pago Pago, AMERICAN SAMOA — This courtesy photo taken Feb. 25th by Bruce Sagapolutele and shared with Samoa News, shows the remnants of the old cable car — once an iconic tourist activity on island — on top of the hill in Utulei. Over the years, many residents, as well as those who reside off island, have called for the revitalization of cable car to boost tourism.

A Rainmaker Hotel rehabilitation project as well as the tramway and cable car from Utulei hill to Mt Alava were among possible economic projects cited in an ASG report in 2018 for federal funding.
