Los Angeles is known for many things—fun and sun, glitz and glamor, and traffic. To help remedy the latter, Los Angeles World Airports (LAWA) has embarked on its Landside Access Modernization Program (LAMP) at Los Angeles International Airport (LAX), which aims to relieve congestion for people traveling to and from the fifth-busiest airport in the world and second busiest in the U.S.
Automated People Mover (APM) - an elevated 2.25-mile electric train system comprised of six stations that will connect travelers to the regional rail system, rental car facility and other drop-off/pick-up locations.
Through its various congestion-relieving elements, the LAMP is expected to enhance the traveler experience and give customers time-certain access to terminals. To accomplish all this, there are five main components that will provide a more predictable and reliable commute to and from the airport – saving time and improving the overall user experience.
