Why could an urban gondola system be the solution to our transportation woes? Well, I’ve said before that transportation isn’t our #1 problem in Tampa; it’s the #1 effect of our #1 problem. Our #1 problem, put quite simply, is that we don’t know what we want to be as a city when we grow up. We don’t have an identity or a sole reputation that is recognized worldwide. In fact, it’s not even known inside of our city! But every city of influence – every city with a powerful economy – is known for something. And it’s usually one thing.
