- "A reminder that some form of transport used to actually be pleasurable, the Pala Springs Aerial Tramway goes from Paleto Forest all the way to the peak of Mount Chiliad"
- — GTA V Manual
The tramway is located in Pala Springs. Pala Springs is located at the northeast of the map, on the Great Ocean Highway in Paleto Forest. If the player runs toward the building the tramway is located on (marked as a Cable Car destination) and runs up the steps, he can wait for the tram to come to the station. If the player then pays $10, they can take a ride on the tramway to the top of Mount Chiliad.
The tram itself operates similar to the subway in Los Santos. The player is able to enter the tram at any time, however a $10 fee is required. Unlike Grand Theft Auto IV, the player can enter the vehicle and walk around the cart. The player won't take a seat until the tram fee is paid. Bicycles and motorbikes can also be taken on the tram. The Aerial Tramway can be destroyed using any explosive weapon, such as the Rocket Launcher.
- The aerial tramway is most likely based on the Palm Springs Aerial Tramway, famous for being the largest rotating tramway in the world.
- If the player lands on top of a moving aerial tramway vehicle, for example by landing on it with a parachute, the vehicle will immediately stop and the player will gain a two-star wanted level.
