Automated People Mover Train Car Commences Testing at LAX

Los Angeles World Airports (LAWA) has announced that the first Automated People Mover (APM) train car has commenced testing at Los Angeles International Airport (LAX).

This is one of 44 INNOVIA 300 APM vehicles manufactured by Alstom at its factory in Pittsburgh, PA for the APM system.

The start of this initial testing phase signifies LAWA’s ongoing progress in delivering LAX’s future APM system.

The 2.25-mile network will reduce vehicle congestion and traffic around LAX and will provide a convenient connection to regional transportation, including the city’s Metro light rail system.

As well as being fully electric, the train cars generate a portion of their own power through regenerative braking. In addition, the command centre and maintenance facility will generate nearly half of their power from solar energy.

LAWA broke ground on the APM project in 2019 and the system is expected to open to passengers in late 2024.
