Definitely recommend using cable car instead of bus. It got us quickly to the top and the view up and down was spectacular. The ride back and for is fairly in-expensive. The cars felt safe and were very clean.

The ride itself was easy and comfortable. Add to that some photo opportunities presented by the scenic view and a large free parking at the bottom, and you'll reach the conclusion in topic.
