Description
Automated People Mover Standards establishes the minimum requirements for the design, construction, operation, and maintenance of an automated people mover (APM) system. An APM is defined as a guided transit mode with fully automated operation, featuring vehicles that operate on guideways with exclusive right-of-way. Collectively, this three-volume standard will assist the industry and public by expediting the approval and release process and facilitating the use of an APM system.

Part 3 provides information on electrical equipment, stations, and guideways. Topics dedicated to electrical equipment include traction power substation equipment, wayside power-collection equipment, passenger station electrical equipment, and uninterruptible power supply. Topics relating to stations include disabled persons access requirements, platform edge protection, evacuation of misaligned trains, emergency lighting and ventilation, and fire protection. Guideways topics include blue light stations, intrusion protection and detection, emergency evacuation and access, fire protection, signage, emergency lighting and ventilation, emergency power supply, guideway alignment, and structural criteria.
