the only public aerial car ferry was from Boston Bar to North Bend, British Columbia, but it shut down in 1986





the North Bend Aerial Ferry was the only aerial ferry that carried cars and was opened to the public in North America. Installed in 1940, it ran until 1986 when it was replaced by a bridge. During that time it carried 2,037,579 vehicles, 6,092,434 people and made 1,610,789 round trips.



the gondola has been restored and is on display along the Trans-Canada highway in downtown Boston Bar.
