When it is operatingm the Tram is a great way to get a view across Pago Pago Bay.
The Tramway No longer in operation, a cable car which ran from Solo Hill, above Utulei Village, to the top of Mt. Alava spanned 1.8km (1.1 miles) across the beautiful Pago Pago Bay. The cable car was constructed in 1967 and was in use until 1980. The only such cable car in the South Pacific, it was originally used to carry TV transmission equipment to the top of Mt. Alava.
The National Park Service currently has a bid to restore/rebuild the cable car and to run its operations. Though funding for the project will be difficult to obtain, Doug Neighbor, Superintendent of the National Park of American Samoa, feels confident that the project will be approved within the next two to three years.
