  • 2000 – Chinese city of Chongqing awards a contract to Aerobus for a 2.6 km system with three stations that crosses the Yangtze and Jialing rivers in the downtown area, with pylons up to 300 ft high. This was project was apparently cancelled, as the rapidly growing city installed bigger, more costly transit modes instead.
  • 2007 – Final approval for construction of a 4.2 km-long installation carried by eight pylons in Weihai (China). The system would connect Liugong Island with the mainland city of Weihei, with a large observation-tower station in the center. While originally unsuccessfully rushed to try to finish in time for the Olympics, according to a company spokesman in early 2009 construction is well underway on the $100 million Weihai line, with completion scheduled for 2011.
