The Roosevelt Island Operating Corp (RIOC) adds:
While we continue to follow social distancing and align our operations with
New York Forward guidance, we also continue to incrementally increase the
number of passengers permitted on the Tram. Tram capacity will increase on
Sunday, November 1st, from 20 to 35 passengers per cabin, and we will
continue to assess and gradually increase in phases.
We understand the need for this mode of transportation, however, the health
and safety of our riders and operators are our priority. We appreciate your
