Wellington, New Zealand Has More Than a Hundred Private Cable Cars

Wellington, the capital city of New Zealand, is built on a rocky coastline, so there’s not a lot of flat land available for real estate development. Many luxury homes are built on steep cliffsides, which makes them difficult to access. To help, some of these wealthy owners have constructed private incline cable cars. The Guardian reports that the city of 215,000 people has an impressive 152 such private lifts.

There used to be more such cable cars–300, in fact. Then safety regulations required demolishing many of them. For homeowners who kept their cable cars, they’re indispensible because their homes are otherwise inaccessible.
