The Automated People Mover (APM) is an electric train system on a 2.25 mile elevated guideway with six stations total – three outside the terminal loop and three inside. The APM trains, elevators, escalators, and moving sidewalks provide for quick access to the terminals and stations. Passengers will be able to view real-time flight information, public art in a variety of media, and will see the iconic Theme Building from a brand new perspective as the train enters the Central Terminal Area. The command center and maintenance facility generates nearly half of its power from solar energy and is designed to be LEED Gold Certified. These design enhancements allowed the team to offset the carbon equivalent of 12 million vehicle miles driven. PBS engineers, Inc is involved to provide Mechanical, Electrical, Plumbing and Fire Protection engineering services to support all six stations and Maintenance facility. We are proud to have been chosen for this historic investment in Los Angeles’ emerging businesses and workforce. Approx. 1.2 million SF.
