Palm Springs Tram History

Opened to the Public:
Year built in, completed in September 1963.

Since opening in 1963, more than 13 million people have made the trip to the top of the mountain in the Palm Springs Tram's rotating cable cars ride! Before opening in 1963, the only way to the top of the Tram was by hiking several hours from Idyllwild, Ca.

A vintage cable car displayed at the Tram entrance.

The Tram's Cable Cars:

Featuring two 80-passenger rotating enclosed cars providing breathtaking views

The Trip and The Elevation:
Valley Station - 2,643'
Mountain Station - 8,516'

The Palm Springs Tram's Architecture:
Both tramway stations (the valley floor station and the mountain-top lodge) were designed by notable mid-century modern architects!

The Palm Springs Tramway Valley Station, constructed between 1949?1963, was designed by architects Albert Frey & Robson C. Chambers.

The Tramway Mountain Station, built in 1961, was designed by E. Stewart Williams.

Distance Traveled to top:
Approximately 12,800' with vertical ascent of 5,873' - 15 minutes travel time one way

Interesting Tram Visitor Info:

Helpful Tip: It's much cooler at the top of the Palm Springs Tram, so consider taking a jacket with you. In fact, it's often 20-30 degrees cooler at the mountain station (8,516 feet) than at the valley station.

The ride to the top of the tram is two and one half miles from the valley station, up Chino Canyon, 15 minutes travel time each way - with breathtaking views stretching as much as 50 miles in all directions as your car rotates to provide optimal views.

Five towers support four 1-7/8" steel cables as well as four hauling cables, two auxiliary cables and a communications cable.

The first tower is the tallest at 214' high; Tower Number Four is the shortest at 56 1/2' high. The weight of steel in the five towers totals 263 tons; the weight of the 11 cables totals 330 tons. The maximum span between towers is 3,455' between Towers 3 and 4.

The Palm Springs Tram is often referred to as one of the 'wonders of the engineering world' because the towers supporting the cables and the tram cars ascending the mountain were erected with the assistance of helicopters more than 48 years ago, first opening in 1963.

Palm Springs Tram Hours:
Cars depart at least every half hour from 10 a.m., Monday-Friday; 8 a.m. weekends and holiday periods. Last car up is 8 p.m. with the last car down at 9:45 p.m.

Tram Location & Information:
Tram Open Daily including holidays! The Palm Springs Tram Valley Station, where tickets may be purchased daily, is located on the north edge of Palm Springs.

Directions from Palm Springs: Take Tramway Road West from Highway 111, the Tram station is located west on Tramway Road, 3 1/2 miles up the hill at One Tram Way, Palm Springs, Ca 92262.

The views are spectacular while going up the mountain as well as when you reach the top. While at the top of the mountain you can go for hike, or walk around or enjoy lunch.

"The food at the top was pretty bad - I wouldn't recommend buying the tickets with food in advance. There wasn't much to do at the top, so it's really not much of an event and kind of expensive for the short tram ride up."

"It's always good, but sure not as beautiful or available in the winter. I like to hike and there isn't much up there during the winter. The food was good. "

"It was so much fun (and a little scary) riding up the tram. The view was amazing. Once we got to the top, we walked down to the trails and did a little sledding (there wasn't much snow, but we were able to have a good time nonetheless). We did the ride 'n lunch for a group, so we ate at one of the restaurants...The food was ok, but the view more than made up for it. "

"The tram ride and museum at the top was excellent. The 360 degree turning of the tram allowed everyone some time for photos. It would have been even better if we could have taken a hike that would have given a view of Palm Springs."

"If, I were to experience this again, which I think I will, I would make a day of it. The weather was a big was beautiful! 85 at the base and 60 on top. The sun really warmed the lovely fresh air. I would plan a hike ( dress appropriately) carry water, etc. etc. I would make a reservation at the restaurant and end the day with a few glasses of wine and , hopefully, and good meal. Sounds like a perfect day, doesn't it?"

"My son, a typical hard-to-impress 12-year-old, was absolutely thrilled with the tram. He talked about it for the rest of the trip and is still sharing pictures and memories of it with his friends. We loved it, too. It's hard to beat a day that includes sunbathing and four feet of snow. Pretty good glass of wine available up there, as well."
