Space Elevator

Another method for transportation has been included in the new Transportation article, a space elevator:

A passing asteroid would have to be captured and put into orbit around Mars, with a cable built down to the equator where it would be suspended a few feet above ground. Cars would then be built to travel up and down the cable, a trip that would take no more than 3 or 4 days.
