Las Vegas - a showcase for automated people mover technology

Document Type



Las Vegas, NV, USA, is well known for the Strip, the wedding chapels where many Hollywood stars have married and its Elvis impersonators. What is not as widely known is that Las Vegas is home to a relatively large number of small scale Automated People Mover (APM) systems that serve the internal site-circulation needs of resorts. In fact, Las Vegas may be considered the birth-place of contemporary, low-cost, cable-propelled systems designed specifically to serve urban needs in North America
