Imagine arriving at the Los Angeles International Airport (LAX) sans the frustration of gridlock to simply reach your terminal. Such a dream is slated to become reality with the opening of the Automated People Mover (APM) in 2023.
Just days into the new decade, construction workers piped in the first concrete for the 83,000-square-foot Maintenance and Storage Facility (MSF) facility, which will serve as the control center for the 2.25-mile elevated electric train system. Comprised of four Bombardier train cars that will stop at six stations to transport travelers in and out of the LAX central terminal area every two minutes during peak hours (for an end-to-end 10-minute ride), the APM is the centerpiece of LAWA’s $5.5 billion Landside Access Modernization Program (LAMP).
