Rendering of the LAX Automated People Mover in the central terminal area

„Starting in 2022, four additional bridges will be connected above the horseshoe - formally known as World Way - connecting the future people mover stop to Terminal 1.5, Terminal 3, Tom Bradley International Terminal, and Terminal 5.5. An existing bridge linking Terminals 7 and 8 to a parking structure is to be incorporated into a bridge linking with the people mover as well.

The new bridges are relatively modest components of the $5.5-billion LAX landside access modernization program, which is itself a mere fraction of a $14-billion makeover that is rapidly reshaping one of the busest airports in the world. The people mover, one of the centerpieces of the program, will be a 2.25-mile monorail-like train with three stops in the central terminal area, and connections to two off-site ground transportation hubs and a rental car facility. The people mover is expected to begin serving passengers in 2023. Those projects would be completed by 2028 - in advance of the Summer Olympic Games scheduled for that year.
