The system could be running by opening day in 2022.

The office of Los Angeles Mayor Eric Garcetti has released renderings of a gondola that would run from Union Station to Dodger Stadium.

Garcetti announced the proposed gondola Thursday morning at a Metropolitan Transportation Authority meeting.

A company known as Aerial Rapid Transit Technologies LLC, which was founded by Drew McCourt — the son of former Dodgers owner Frank McCourt — would reportedly pay a portion of the estimated $125 million cost.

Each Gondola ride to Chavez Ravine would take about five minutes. Garcetti said the system could be running by opening day in 2022.

In a statement, the Dodgers called the idea "an important and innovative project."
