The Jacksonville Skyway is a people mover system in Jacksonville, Florida, operated by the Jacksonville Transportation Authority. The track is 2.5 miles (4 kilometers) long and connects the two halves of downtown Jacksonville, which are separated by the St. Johns River. Each train can have from two to six cars. The trains travel at up to 35 miles (56 kilometers) per hour and cross the St. Johns via the Acosta Bridge.
The idea of a "people mover" in Jacksonville dates back at least to a 1971 report for the Jacksonville Area Planning Board. Work began in 1984, and the first leg opened in 1989. The second phase and third phases, including the river crossing, were completed by November 1, 2000.
The Skyway has been one of the biggest points of contention in Jacksonville. Many critics say it goes "from nowhere to nowhere."
According to figures from the Jacksonville Transportation Authority, average weekday ridership in 2002 was 2,871, about 5% above the previous year's figure. The agency's goal was 5,000 average weekday riders by 2005.
