Bombardier deploys Sacramento airport peoplemover

Posted on October 10, 2011

Bombardier Transportation is celebrating the start of passenger services on the new INNOVIA APM 100 automated people mover (APM) system at the Sacramento International Airport (SMF) in California.

The new dual-lane INNOVIA APM 100 system is the primary passenger connector for the airport's brand new Central Terminal B complex, linking the new main building called Central Terminal B and the new boarding gate building called Concourse B.

SMF's terminal modernization program, known as The Big Build, commenced in 2008 and the new complex is three times the size of the original Terminal B. The new Central Terminal B, along with the APM system, is now officially open to passengers.

Bombardier designed and supplied the driverless transit system for SMF, which includes two INNOVIA APM 100 vehicles, Bombardier CITYFLO 650 automatic train control, power distribution system, communications equipment, station doors as well as operation and maintenance (O&M) services for five years, along with an option for a further five years of O&M.

The driverless INNOVIA vehicles were built by Bombardier at its plant in Pittsburgh, Pa.
