Proceedings of the 13th International Conference on Automated People Movers and Transit Systems, held in Paris, France, May 22-25, 2011. Sponsored by the Transportation & Development Institute of ASCE.

These papers are available only in digital form and can be downloaded at no charge at the ASCE Library.

This proceedings consists of 45 papers on automated people movers and automated transit systems that present the latest technological advances, projects, and planning. Although the full automation of automated people movers originated at airports and activity centers, it is currently being applied to increasing numbers of major urban transit systems. Some 14 papers in this proceedings are directly related to new automated urban systems or the upgrading of older manual systems.

Topics include:

  • airports;
  • major activity centers;
  • new systems;
  • policies, planning, and perspectives;
  • system improvements;
  • policy and perspectives for areas with fully automated metros; and
  • urban metro applications.

This collection will be of interest to planners, inventors, designers, suppliers, builders, owners, and operators of automated transit systems of all forms.
