Both can happen. The stairs could be maintenance/emergency access under the gondola. (Access across tracks is another matter altogether, so probably needs to be a pedestrian underpass at that stage).

Also, bike hooks are a feature of mini gondolas too. Hang your bike on the side for the ride back up...

Walk down the freebie stairs, but you will be tempted to pay the gondola 3 dollars for the ride back up especially if it starts raining? ;-)

Kids would ride free. This will help families out.

It won't hurt the stairs because it just increases cross-escarpment traffic. Also there are many Families who do not bother walking down stairs because the kids will refuse to go back up.. With the gondola as a backup option, even more people can be willing to use the stairs. It is far more efficient than catching a bus. And the gondola capital cost is very similiar to maybe four city buses (but lasts much longer than them), and even more effective than them for the Concession-to-Gage itinerary.
