Venice People Mover
Piazzale Roma

The Venice People Mover (Italian: People Mover di Venezia, Venetian: People Mover de Venesia) is a people mover-type public transit system in Venice, Italy that opened in 2010. It connects Piazzale Roma with the city's Tronchetto island car parking facility, via a stop above the Marittima cruise terminal.

The transport system started operating on April 19, 2010.[3]

The line was built by a consortium led by an Austrian company Doppelmayr Cable Car. The two vehicles of the system are pulled by a cable similar to a funicular. The whole 870-metre-long (0.5 mi) journey takes three minutes.[2]
