Passenger Notice

The American National Standard For Passenger Ropeways recognizes that certain dangers and risks are inherent in machines of this type, and their operation. It is also recognized that inherent and other risks or dangers exist for those who are in the process of loading, riding or unloading from lifts, tows or conveyors. Passengers accept the risks inherent in such participation of which the ordinary prudent person is or should be aware. 

Passengers shall use good judgment and act in a responsible manner while using the ropeway, tow or conveyor, including:

  • Participating in the loading, riding, and unloading processes in such a manner as to reduce risks for themselves and others;
  • Obeying all written and oral instructions and warnings;
  • Refraining from using the lift, tow or conveyor while under the influence of drugs or alcohol;
  • Properly use the lift, tow or conveyor and equipment provided.

All passengers who use a lift, tow or conveyor shall be responsible for their own loading, riding, and unloading. They shall be presumed to have sufficient ability, physical dexterity, and/or personal assistance to negotiate and to be evacuated safely. Passengers shall maintain control of their speed and course while loading and unloading. A passenger shall get on and get off at designated areas. 

No passenger shall load the lift without first understanding and observing the proper loading, riding, and unloading procedures. 

Passengers, while riding a ropeway, tow or conveyor; shall not throw or expel therefrom any object, nor shall any passenger do any act or thing that shall interfere with the operation. Passengers shall not willfully engage in any type of conduct that may contribute to or cause injury to any other person. 

Please read and observe all signs. As for instructions if needed.
