The Skycar (or can be referred to as Cable Car) is an aerial tramway in Grand Theft Auto IV.

Description

The Skycar is an aerial tramway that connects Lancet, Algonquin to Colony Island in the Grand Theft Auto IV rendition of Liberty City, just south of the Algonquin Bridge. The tramway falls under the management of the Liberty City Transport Authority (LTA) and is dubbed "The Pigeon", similar to the "The Fox" nickname stamped onto GTA IV's buses.

Niko Bellic can take a ride on the trams, though the player cannot see anything or do anything. First person view can be accessed through the Whiz cell phone, once it is upgraded and has camera capabilities (after the mission Photo Shoot is completed). Apparently no pedestrians are programmed to use the skycar. It is possible for Niko to hold onto the tram in the station, but once it takes off, he just lets go, making it literally impossible to vehicle surf on it (much like all other vehicles in the game).

The tram link is evidently based on the Roosevelt Island Tramway between Manhattan and Roosevelt Island in New York City. As such, the tram cars, stations, and cable pylons share a likeness with the real-life rendition.

Trivia

  • It is impossible to enter the car while having a wanted level.
  • You can get an interior view of the car by selecting the camera on the cell phone while inside.
