This study aimed to assess the impact of integrating a new form of mass transportation, which is the aerial ropeway transport (ART) system, into the current transportation network of Baguio City. Today, mass transportation is limited in Baguio therefore, residents resort to private vehicles or private transportation. Traffic congestion is rapidly worsening in Baguio and introducing new form of mass transportation that will only require a limited amount of structure footprint, may improve the current situation. The study aims to assess the acceptability of a proposed ART system in Baguio City. It looked into the current characteristics of transportation in the city, proposed the most appropriate route based on travel demand, and formulated mode choice equations to determine the significant factors affecting the commuters' choice to switch to ART as an alternative mode of transportation. The survey responses are analyzed using NLOGIT to determine the acceptability while the proposed route is modeled using the origin and destination trips of the respondents. The proposed route is a single line that runs through the barangays of San Luis Village, Military Cut-off, and Gilbraltar.

The study can be improved by determining other attributes to analyze the acceptability of the ART. The EMME software can also be used for public transport modelling to determine the most appropriate route of the area with the greatest demand.
