As part of Orlando International Airport’s $3.1 billion Capital Improvement Program, the Automated People Mover (APM) system that shuttles passengers between the Main Terminal and Gates 1-59 will be completely renovated over the next two years.

The process began October 12, 2016 with the removal of one of the two trains that service Airside 3 (Gates 30-59). A 600-ton crane lifted the three cars off the elevated guideway and set them onto flatbed trucks for transport. Construction of new running surfaces will now begin prior to the installation of a state-of-the-art Mitsubishi APM system.

During the renovation process, a single APM train will remain operational. In the unlikely event of an interruption of service, the airport will deploy buses to transport passengers between the terminal and the gates. Special signage and airport personnel will assist passengers until the train is returned to service.
