The project to renovate and modernize the Roosevelt Island Tram was completed at the end of November 2010, with the reopening of the tram. The tram had been out of service from March 1, 2010 until the relaunch on November 30, 2010.

The tram provides transportation between Roosevelt Island in the middle of the East River and the Manhattan station on 59th Street and 1st Avenue via a 5 minute aerial tramway ride which parallels the Queensboro bridge.
