Roosevelt Island Tram facts and figures

The tram serves both residents and tourists. While there isn’t data for exactly how many of the riders fall into which category, Robert Wise of Leitner-Poma of America estimates that about 70 percent of the ridership is residents, while 30 percent is tourists.

There are currently about 14,000 residents on Roosevelt Island.
