The Central Government of India has approved a transfer of 1,500 square meters of land belonging to Indo-Tibetan Border Police (ITBP) at Mussoorie to the State government of Uttarakhand for the development of Aerial Passenger Ropeway System. The project is a mono-cable ropeway and it will connect Dehradun and Mussoorie areas. The lower terminal in Doon will be situated at 958.20 meters and the upper one at 1,996 meters. The ropeway's estimated carrying capacity is 1,000 persons per hour per direction.

The project is expected to attract domestic and foreign tourists, which in turn will provide a boost to the tourism industry in the state and create additional employment opportunities in the tourism sector. In addition, it will reduce the travel time to 16 minutes from the current one hour and decongest the Doon-Mussoorie road.
