The Los Angeles World Airports (LAWA) Board of Commissioners has awarded the LAX Integrated Express solutions (LINXS) consortium with a $4.9bn contract to design, construct and operate the Automated People Mover (APM) project at Los Angeles International Airport (LAX).

The contract will require LINXS to maintain and operate the APM transit system for 30 years, with Bombardier set to provide the operating system (OS) for the project, alongside the transit vehicles.

“We are thrilled to begin work on this project, which will transform the experience for travelers at one of America’s busiest and most iconic airports, while bringing jobs and workforce development opportunities to the local community,” said LINXS.

“We are also excited to join with LAWA on its first public-private partnership, providing a best-value technical and financial solution to extend LAX’s world-class facilities, reduce congestion and provide time-certain travel options.”

Once complete, it is estimated that the APM will carry up to 10,000 passengers each hour, equating to an estimated 85.1mn passengers each year.

The system is scheduled to be operational in 2023.
