The Pearson peoplemover is the same as the one in Vegas between Mandalay Bay, Luxor and Excalibur. It's great for TO because the snow will fall through the space frame. It's made by Doppelmeyer - the chairlift people and it's really a cable car. The cars cannot change tracks and just run back and forth on their allignment.

Kuala Lumpur International Airport AEROTRAIN





Aerotrain is a complimentary automated people-mover shuttle system (ADtranz CX-100) that shuttles passengers between Main Terminal Building and Satellite Building. It offers the best combination of short journey time, simplicity and fail-safe operation, and resistance against breakdown. The system runs on pneumatic rubber-typed wheels to provide confort.

The Tracked Transit System (TTS) connects two stations, one in the node at the centre of the Contact Pier's Internationl Level and one close to the centre of the Satellite building's Departure/Arrival level. The TTS provides transportation for airline passengers over an elevated guideway (1286m or 4219ft) and under the taxiways between the MTB and the Satellite Building.

The Aerotrain operates at three to five minutes intervals for the pier-satellite service. Round trip time takes 5 min 5 sec with the maximum speed being 56km/h (35mp/h).


With two 2-car trains (250-passenger capacity) at opening Phase-I, the system will have the capacity to handle 3870 passenger/hour per direction. Phase-II calls for two 3-car trains (6 in total) capable of handling 5805 passenger/hour per direction. Each car-train has a maximum capacity of 83 passengers. The power supply uses a 3-phase 600 V at 50Hz and the propulsion system uses a 100hp DC Electric Motor.

Automatic train control (ATC) manages the operation of the entire system, controlling vehicle speeds, headways, stops and door openings in stations, and integrating all functions to enhance reliability and performance of the systems.

NOTE: The Adtranz CX-100 is now known as Bombardier CX-100 after the takeover of Adtranz by Bombardier Transportation

This train is the exact same system as Singapore's Bukit Panjang LRT

The people mover systems that are presently being marketed are quite diverse. There is a competition underway to build a people mover system to connect Oakland International Airport to BART. Six teams have submitted proposals. The proposals include four different conventional rubber-tired people movers, one monorail, and one maglev:

Airport Connector Team - Bombardier - Rubber-Tired People Mover


Quiet Runner Team - Itochu/CHSST - Maglev


Oakland Gateway Constructors - Siemens Transportation - Rubber-Tired People Mover (Withdrawn)


East Bay Monorail Company - Washington Group International/Hitachi - Monorail


Fru-Con/Ishikawajima-Harima - MTR Corporation Ltd. - Rubber-Tired People Mover


Tutor-Saliba Team - Sumitomo Corporation/Mitsubishi Heavy Industries - Rubber-Tired People Mover


For more information, see BART's website for the project:
