Inclined elevator

Inclined elevators use the basic technology of vertical elevators to cover very short, steep routes. Being fully automated, they normally operate without staff.

A shining example of an inclined elevator is the fully automated train on Montmartre in Paris, France. Two completely separate carriers with a capacity of 60 passengers each deliver up to 3,000 visitors per hour to the top of this famous hill, offering breathtaking views of the Sacré-Coeur basilica through glass roofs.
