As one of the projects launched to rejuvenate the Golden Horn as part of the IMM’s Urban Design Project for the entire metropolitan area, Eyup-Pierre Loti Aerial Cable Car was designed to conserve the district’s historical-touristic fabric, to provide easy access for local and foreign tourists as well as to eliminate transportation and parking problems.

Pierre Loti district constitutes the most important observation deck of the Golden Horn. There is also a binocular viewer on the upper platform of the station.

System
The line is a two-station overhead transport system with a single intermediary support tower, featuring two unidirectional cabins each for eight passengers. The system has a single rope, used both as a carrying and hauling rope. The first station is located on the Golden Horn coast, and the second is in front of the Pierre Loti Café. The line has a safety system ensuring automatic stopping in case of emergency such as strong wind, deviation of the pulley from its track, cabins stopping at incorrect locations and very high speed; and displays failures on the control computer. Operators can monitor from the station computers various technical data such as the distance of the cabins from the stations, cabin speed, DC motor current and torque, positions of the safety switches, failure checklist, active failures and wind speed motor. 

Folding seats inside the cabins allow for travelling with wheelchairs. In case of power supply cut, diesel engine is started to activate the hydraulic system, and thus, the cabins are safely carried to the stations.

Station Structures
Eyup Station located along the Golden Horn and was designed rather large because of the technical and mechanical equipment used for running the system. Built on an area of 625 m², the station is located under Eyup Sultan Mezarlığı (Cemetery). However, the Piyer Loti Station is a station where the cabins go back and is designed smaller due to the geographical restrictions of the area.
