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

Innovia monorail system in greenfield city

People mover and monorail at a glance

  • Fully automated systems for an efficient and reliable operation
  • Seamless integration and flexible route alignment for existing infrastructure
  • An unprecedented track record in performance and safety
  • Capacity range of 3,000 to 51,000 passengers per hour per direction
  • More than 50 years of experience

The Innovia automated people mover (APM) system and the Innovia monorail system embody the evolution of successful and dependable transit operations over many years. These systems operate on dedicated guideways and 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

The Innovia APM and monorail solutions are driverless transport systems specially designed to serve airports and dense urban areas. They offer quick, comfortable and convenient service for commuters within cities, to and from airports or between airport terminals. Innovia APM and monorail cars operate on dedicated underground, ground level or elevated guideways. This ensures a smooth service that does not interfere with surrounding road or runway traffic.

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 51,000 passengers per hour per direction, and it has an exceptional route flexibility allowing for tight bends (22m) and steep gradients (10 per cent) at speeds of up to 80 km/h. Customisable headways down to 60 seconds 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 elevated guideways. The guideway structure is built off-site for fast assembly on-site. Its lightweight design minimises land usage, and cost and disruption for civil construction.

Wide range of configurations for different capacity needs

The Innovia APM and monorail systems offer capacities from 3,000 to 51,000 people per hour per direction. 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.
