Hi Jose - can I just echo what Diana Avart said - don't be shy - have a think about your first zip line to pilot the idea, where would it be to and from - how many people could use it per hour, which commuter routes would it help alleviate, and is it possible to zip wire back in the evening? This was a special experiment in London - but maybe there are other cities out there with Zip Lines to get around? Good luck, Katie - Facilitator
