Prime Minister Narendra Modi's constituency Varanasi will soon become the first Indian city to start ropeway service as a mode of public transport. The proposed ropeway will be constructed between Cantt Railway Station (Varanasi Junction) to Church Square (Godauliya) to ease the traffic congestion.

According to Deepak Agrawal, Divisional Commissioner of Varanasi, "City needed a public transport service, so as per the comprehensive mobility plan, the ropeway system was a viable option to improve traffic."
