The cable car across the river Thames, which was introduced for the Olympics, is set to cost £6m to be run in its first year a Freedom of Information request has revealed.
Although, Transport for London failed to reveal how much the cable car has taken in fares.
The Evening Standard report:
The running costs of Boris Johnson’s £60 million Thames cable car are set to hit £6 million in its first year.
Transport for London has admitted operating costs of around £500,000 a month since the sponsored scheme, called the Emirates Air Line, was launched by the Mayor last June.
More than 1.7 million passengers have already taken the five-minute trip between North Greenwich and the Royal Docks, surpassing its first-year target of 1.3 million trips.
