LOS ANGELES — A modernization program for the Los Angeles International Airport calls for a new 2.25-mile elevated rail system that would transport travelers to airport terminals and support facilities.

The new system, which would be up to 70 feet in height above existing grades, would serve six stations connecting new rental car, airport parking, and Metro facilities to airline terminals. Trains would operate on average every two or three minutes and would have the capacity to handle 6,000 passengers per hour.

In addition, the people mover would connect directly to the Los Angeles County Metropolitan Transportation Authority’s Crenshaw and Green rail lines.

Project managers with the access plan recently published a video outlining the automated people mover and its advantages over traditional forms of accessing the airport.

The automated people move is one of the largest components to the airport’s modernization plan. Preliminary plans were launched in 2006 and much of the construction work will last through 2023.

More information is available online.
