Airports tests first car of its massive new people mover train.

The first train car in testing.

On May 2, Airports achieved an important milestone – the first Automated People Mover train car entered testing. It signified ongoing progress as the department works to deliver the innovative project that will transform the LAX experience.

The Automated People Mover is the centerpiece to the massive Landside Access Modernization Program (LAMP), a $5.5 billion effort that will ferry passengers between the airport’s terminals and the regional transportation system, ride-sharing services, passenger pickup areas, bike access, and much more.

The people mover is expected to open in late 2025.
