Rail technology leader Bombardier Transportation announced today that LAX Integrated Express Solutions (LINXS), of which it is a member with a ten percent share, has finalized a contract with Los Angeles World Airports to design, build, finance, operate and maintain an automated people mover (APM) system at Los Angeles International Airport (LAX). The total contract is valued at approximately $4.9 billion US (4.2 billion euro). LINXS has attributed two contracts to joint ventures (JVs): one for the design-build portion and one for the operations and maintenance portion. The JV in charge of the design and build portion has awarded a contract to Bombardier valued at approximately $219 million US (187 million euro). In addition, Bombardier has a 55 percent share in the operations and maintenance JV, which was awarded a contract valued at $576 million US (490 million euro). The financial close of this Public-Private Partnership contract follows an announcement made by Los Angeles World Airports on February 15 selecting LINXS as the Recommended Developer, and contract signature in April.
Bombardier will be responsible for the design and supply of 44 BOMBARDIER INNOVIA APM 300 vehicles, signalling, and onboard and wayside communication systems, and will lead a joint venture that will provide operations and maintenance services for the system and related facilities for a 25-year period, following completion of the construction.
Benoit Brossoit, President, Americas Region, Bombardier Transportation, said, "We are proud to be a member of the LINXS team and to partner with Los Angeles International Airport in bringing a new mobility option to the traveling public. With this contract, nine of the ten busiest airports in the United States have chosen Bombardier for their automated transit systems. We are confident that we will deliver Los Angeles a modern and dependable APM system worthy of a world-class airport."
Bombardier has been designing, building, operating and maintaining automated transit systems for airports and cities around the world for nearly 50 years. Bombardier's INNOVIA APM 300 vehicles, utilizing the highly-proven BOMBARDIER CITYFLO 650 automatic train control system, represent the latest generation of driverless APM technology.
LAX is the fifth busiest airport in the world, and second busiest in the United States. The new APM system is one component of the airport's Landside Access Modernization Program. The system will run on a 2.25-mile (3.6 km) elevated dual-lane guideway with six stations and create new connections between the airport, public and private transportation, and a new consolidated rental car facility. The system will be built using a Public-Private Partnership contracting model, the first automated people mover system to be procured this way in the United States.
In addition to Bombardier, the LINXS consortium is comprised of ACS Infrastructure Development, Inc., Balfour Beatty Investments, Inc, Fluor Enterprises, Inc., and HOCHTIEF PPP Solutions North America, Inc.
