PALM SPRINGS – Starting Monday, the Palm Springs Aerial Tramway will be closed until October for annual maintenance.

Tramway officials said the shutdown will allow for maintenance projects that cannot be completed while the tramway is open to the public.

“This year’s shut-down will provide an opportunity to replace bearings on numerous Tram systems, shorten a haul rope and comprehensive mechanical testing,” Tramway Vice President of Maintenance Nick Clesceri said. “And these are in addition to our regular tramway maintenance tasks that are completed during our annual shutdown period.”

A tentative reopening is set for 8 a.m. on Saturday, Oct. 1.

“The Tramway runs seven days a week, year-round, so –while we regret the inconvenience our annual closure causes — this time allows us to complete projects we cannot do when we are open to the public,” said Nancy Nichols, Vice President of Sales & Marketing.
