Los Angeles Mayor, Eric Garcetti, and Los Angeles World Airports (LAWA) CEO, Deborah Flint, inaugurated the construction works on the Automated People Mover (APM) project which will connect travelers directly to airport terminals and create new and convenient locations for passenger pick-up and drop-off outside the Central Terminal Area.
“Everyone traveling to or from LAX should have access to modern, reliable public transportation that gets them to their destination on time,” said Mayor Eric Garcetti.
In 2018, the 30-year, USD 4.9 billion contract was signed with LINXS for the design, building and financing of APM system. The project includes the construction of a 3.6-km elevated line and six stations that will connect travelers to the regional rail system, rental car facility and other drop-off/pick-up locations.
LINX consortium is formed by Fluor, Balfour Beatty, ACS Infrastructure Development, Dragados USA, HOCHTIEF PPP Solutions, Flatiron, HDR and HNTB.
The project will transform public transportation, reduce traffic congestion, and deliver a world-class experience for travelers at Los Angeles International Airport (LAX).
