Project Description

AirTrain is a fully automated, fixed guideway transit system to transport passengers and personnel between the Airport landside activity centers, terminal buildings, new parking structures, rental car facilities, cargo facilities, and other airport facilities.  The Project includes two elevated circulating loops, each approximately 7,000 feet long.  The Project also contains an outer loop of dual lane guideway for easy access to remote parking stations.  As Project Manager/Construction Administrator, PGH Wong Engineering, Inc. coordinated numerous major heavy civil construction contracts within the confinements of the 24-hour operating airport, maintaining airport service, business operations, traffic flow, and continued pedestrian access.  Wong also played a key role serving as the liaison between the Airport and the California Public Utilities Commission (CPUC) in order to achieve the CPUC’s concurrence required for passenger service.

Key Features

  • The Project includes nine elevated passenger stations, 5.5 miles of aerial guideways, 38 new vehicles, a new maintenance and storage facility, and a new operations control center.
  • This massive undertaking implemented one of the most advanced driverless, communications-based train control systems in the world.
  • The AirTrain System successfully opened on March 3, 2003.
