Departing and arriving skycars as viewed from the Algonquin side in GTA IV. The Algonquin Bridge is visible to the left.

The Skycar is an aerial tramway in Grand Theft Auto IV.

Description

The unnamed skycar is an aerial tramway that connects Lancet, Algonquin to Colony Island in the Grand Theft Auto IV rendition of Liberty City, just south of the Algonquin Bridge. The tramway falls under the management of the Liberty City Transport Authority (LTA) and is dubbed "The Pigeon", similar to the "The Fox" nickname stamped onto GTA IV's buses.

Niko can take a ride on the trams, though the player cannot see anything or do anything. First person view can be accessed through the Cell Phone, once it is upgraded and has camera capabilities. It is possible for Niko to hold onto the tram in the station, but once it takes off, he just lets go.

The tram link is evidently based on the Roosevelt Island Tramway between Manhattan and Roosevelt Island in New York City. As such, the tram cars, stations, and cable pylons share a likeness with the real-life rendition.
