Automated People Mover Station at Toronto Pearson International Airport

As part of the ambitious redevelopment and expansion project at Toronto Pearson International Airport, Airport Architects Canada provided master planning and architectural design consulting services to Earth Tech for the Automated People Mover (APM) system.The APM is a cable-driven train on an elevated guideway that links Terminals 1, Terminal 3 and the reduced rate parking facility. Clad in deep metallic blue and silver, the trains are completely automated and controlled via a central facility. In addition to quicker and more efficient service, passengers taking the APM are provided with expansive views of the airport facilities and runways. The system was designed to allow for a downtown rail link connection by Diesel Multiple Unit trains.
