Dogs on the Cable Car

Dogs are here to stay

The capital's iconic funicular officially put all paws forward permanently on December 1st 2021 to welcome our furry friends onboard with us.

The 'Bark and Ride' trial ran over the course of November 2021 and we saw 157 dogs travel between Lambton Quay and Kelburn. We are proud to have made the journey up the hill more accessible for our growing number of inner-city residents who have four-legged friends. 

The proceeds from dog tickets during the 'Bark and Ride' trial were warmly donated to the SPCA which do amazing work for our furry companions.
