People mover and monorail: Efficient solutions for urban and airport transit


People mover and monorail at a glance

  • Fully automated eco-friendly solutions for efficient and reliable operations
  • Exceptional route flexibility and seamless insertion into existing environments
  • An unprecedented track record in performance and safety
  • Mass transit solution with quick realisation times for small to high passenger capacities
  • More than 50 years of experience

Alstom’s Innovia portfolio of fully automated, driverless transport solutions embodies the evolution of successful and dependable transit operations over many years. Designed to specially serve airports, rapidly growing cities and dense urban areas, Innovia automated people mover (APM) and Innovia monorail systems operate on dedicated guideways. This ensures a smooth service that does not interfere with surrounding road or runway traffic. The solutions are characterised by exceptional route flexibility, outstanding availability and high efficiency in terms of passenger capacity, energy consumption and land use.

The latest evolution of proven technology

Innovia APM and monorail solutions offer quick, comfortable and convenient service for commuters within cities, to and from airports or between airport terminals. APM trains are made up of single cars that are coupled together, which gives a lot of operational flexibility: at peak hours, extra cars can be added during operations to increase capacity. People movers can operate elevated, at ground or underground, whereas the monorail’s infrastructure is entirely elevated, giving its passengers a unique travel experience across the city. Innovia monorails are fixed units with walk-through interiors for even greater passenger comfort. 

World-leading performance

From London to Guangzhou, Phoenix to Dubai, our rubber-tyre APM and monorail systems transport thousands of passengers reliably, quickly and safely every day. It is an efficient service designed to carry up to 1,150 passengers per train, and it has an exceptional route flexibility allowing for tight bends (22m) and steep gradients (6 per cent) at speeds of up to 80 km/h. Shortest headways significantly reduce travel times for passengers.

Minimised land usage and fast construction

Both Innovia systems provide efficient and cost-effective solutions for growing cities. Quiet vehicles wind their way through existing infrastructure on dedicated guideways. The guideway structure is built off-site for fast assembly on-site. Its lightweight design minimises land usage, CO2 emissions and cost, and disruption for civil construction.  

Wide range of configurations for different capacity needs

Innovia APMs and monorails offer capacities from 150 to 1,150 passengers per train. Configurations from one to six cars for APMs and two to eight cars for monorails ensure efficient and flexible transport capacities for different urban needs. The vehicles feature spacious and open designs, low interior noise and vibrations as well as large windows to create a bright atmosphere and comfortable journey experience.
