Carnegie Mellon architecture students put together a huge study an redesign of Pittsburgh’s urban landscaping and planning. One idea included a ski lift like cable car that would go from the top of the civic arena area down to the David Lawrence Convention center (page 103 of the report).  Some other ideas included a water taxi system, dedicated bike lanes, and reusing the civic arena space as a park with a lake and ice skating rink in the winter.
