Project Overview

Los Angeles World Airports (LAWA) is developing a multi-billion dollar update to the ground transportation system at Los Angeles International Airport (LAX). The Landside Access Modernization Program (LAMP) includes a landside Automated People Mover (APM), a Consolidated Rent-A-Car (CONRAC) facility, multiple Intermodal Transportation Facilities (ITFs), and a comprehensive network of roadway improvements.

The Automated People Mover (APM) System is a crucial part of the overall plan to improve the LAX experience. This APM system will feature the design and construction of:

- An approximate 2.25-mile-long, elevated dual-lane guideway

- A total of 6 stations:

- 3 stations connecting new rental car, airport parking, and Metro facilities to the airline terminals

- 3 stations in the Central Terminal Area providing fast and easy connections to 9 airline terminals with a pedestrian walkway system

- New vertical circulation cores and pedestrian bridges

- Demolition of buildings and parking structures

Once completed, the traveling public will enjoy a new APM system that operates up to nine trains simultaneously resulting in short wait times at each station (two to three minutes). Each train up to 175 feet long could consist of four cars each holding approximately 50 passengers and their luggage. Pedestrian access will be enhanced by moving walkways to the terminals and parking garages. All of this will be free for airport users, 24 hours a day.
