The iconic Wellington Cable Car will be turning 119 years old this month. Everyone was welcomed to join in on celebrations.
The Cable Car first opened to the public in 1902, following construction that began in 1899.
Demand for transport in the area had grown following a growing population. It has survived two world wars, plagues and pestilence.
Mayor Andy Foster said that the Cable Car served ‘many' purposes over the years, that it has stood as a test of time.
“The Cable Car has been a trusty, sustainable and reliable transport option for over a century, moving millions of commuters, students and tourists from the city to Kelburn and back again,” he said.
“Nearly every Wellingtonian will have fond memories of their experiences on this iconic ride, and it’s always top of the list for visitors to the city.”
From February 20-22 family pass holders can purchase a model of the Cable Car for just $10 which usually costs $29.90.
