If you are in a hurry and find queues at the cable car station then try to avoid it, in order not to be late.
In high season thousands of tourists take the three minutes ride on it up and down just for the fun. Though it can transport up to 1200 persons per hour, the waiting time in a large queue may be more than one hour and a half.
You do it better if you are just walking down; it takes cca. 30-40 minutes, but yoou reach your place at least in time.

By the way, the cable car, also known as the teleferique, a kind of gondola lift was constructed by a Swiss company, Doppelmayr in 1979. It was a gift given to the island by a Santorinian owner of a Greek ship company.
