Program to Spotlight Plans for LAX ‘People Mover’
Los Angeles World Airports (LAWA) is developing an Automated People Mover (APM) system to connect passengers from a new rent-a-car center to an intermodal transportation facility and then to the LAX Central Terminal Area. The APM system currently is in the planning phases.
Flight Path will present an update on the project as part of the museum’s Speaker Series on Tuesday, June 27. The program will begin at 10 a.m. at Flight Path in the LAX Imperial Terminal, 6661 W. Imperial Highway, Los Angeles. Ross Vitale, senior management analyst in the LAWA Community Relations Division, will speak. Admission and parking are free.
“We have basic information about the APM on display in the museum,” said Flight Path President Lynne Adelman. “But many of our visitors are eager to know more. This is why we have scheduled a special presentation as part of our Speaker Series.”
Current plans call for the APM system to be fully automated and grade separated from pedestrians and other vehicles. It will be designed for passengers with luggage. It is intended to provide reliable access to the airport and ensure that passengers can get to their terminals quickly. The anticipated completion date for the project is 2023.
