We are engineers and planners for urban mobility and public transport. As educated ropeway engineers and experienced cable car technicians, we mainly deal with planning and construction of cable propelled transport systems such as the aerial cableway and the guideway-based suspension railway.

The zatran GmbH was founded in 2011 with the aim of creating a balanced eco-social community life in urban environments and cities. The focus will be on development, planning, construction supervision and supervision of urban aerial cableways and guideway-based suspension railway systems.

A livable coexistence of humanity will depend on the design of urban living spaces. Urban public transport with its innovative cable car systems and guideway-based suspension railways play an important role in reducing the stress factor and preserving the health for all creatures. All forecasts predict that by 2030 more than 60 % of the world population will live in cities. Therefore, it is obvious that tomorrow’s urban living spaces will need far-reaching improvements in mobility at a third level, e.g. with a detachable aerial cableway in the form of a gondola or a track-guided and guideway-based suspension railway in the form of an Automated People Mover (APM) system.

As experienced ropeway engineers and cable car experts for urban public transport, we know the exact steps which are needed to develop and implement aerial cableway and suspension railway projects.
