Mussoorie Sky Car Company Pvt. Ltd., a consortium led by FIL Industries Private Ltd., and comprising of POMA SAS France and SRM Engineering LLP, has commenced work on India’s longest ropeway system at a length over 5.5 km connecting the twin cities of Dehradun and Mussoorie. 

The ropeway will cut down the 33 km driving distance between Dehradun to and Mussoorie, which can take from 1.5 to 3 hours depending on traffic, to a mere 15 minutes. The ropeway will be ready by September 2026.

For the first time in India, this ropeway will have 10-seater cabins. These enclosed, fully ventilated, glazed, automatic opening and closing-door cabins will initially have the capacity to carry up to 1300 Passengers-Per-Hour-Per-Direction.This is the first ropeway in India that is being built both for tourism purposes as well as for urban mobility between the two cities in Uttarakhand.
The Mussoorie-Dehradun sustainable ropeway project is being built with state-of-the-art, world-class infrastructure. Once ready, it will not only provide a source of employment and bring in revenue to the state; it will also attract tourists from across the world, contributing considerably to the state GDP. 

The project also envisions integrated infrastructure development, including hospitality, Food and Beverages as well as retail facilities, which will boost the local economies of both Dehradun and Mussoorie.
