Typical funicular train, ideal for getting to Cardada cable car
Sep 2018 • Couples
This little funicular railway operates from Locarno town centre and is the perfect way to get to the Cardada cable car (which leads on to the Cimetta chairlift). We found it well organised with polite and helpful staff. The train does get crowded, but the trip is not that long. They only take cash. There is not much to see from the train itself, but the views from the top are superb.

Nice, a bit expensive, not easily accessible with wheelchair
Sep 2017 • Family
It's a nice and convenient way to get up to the cable car going up to Cardada. Was quite crowded and also not very cheap..
There are stairs on both ends, but easier not so steep at the lower station. So a bit of a challenge with a wheelchair or trolley..

Fastest way to get to Orselina but far too expensive, unorganised and unfriendly staff!
Apr 2017 • Family
It appears that the staff know that visitors/tourists take the cable car no matter what to get as fast as possible up to Orselina and after a short walk to Madonna del Sasso.. but if there was an equivalent alternative nobody would use the cable car. Why?
Far to expensive! An adult ticket costs CHF 7.20 or about EUR 7.
Even the passengers are queuing, there is nobody at the counter selling tickets so that the next load of 70 passengers are ready to board. NO! You have to wait for the person to come down with the cable car, step into the little box and sell tickets to the waiting visitors. That's a total no-go for me. How little service orientation is that!?!
While I was taking the ride up to Orselina, a foreign family with little kids took the cable car and stood at the other end of where the 'tram engineer" was standing (at the head of the cable car). When the kids where playing with the instruments and the break wheel at other end of the car, all of a sudden the engineer was screaming all the way across the car scolding in bad Italian words the "other end of the car". Nobody, at least I didn't get who he addressed. Doesn't matter anyway. Fact is, that's not the way to treat people. Be nice and appreciate people paying CHF 7.20 for a return ticket and a roughly 1600m ride with your cable car. Please consider next time you are about to scold your customer!
