Abstract:

The paper addresses the considerations explored and the final plan identified as the most acceptable solution for implementation of an automated people mover at the Chicago-O'Hare International Airport. It discusses the airport environment prior to implementation of the Chicago O'Hare Development Program; the causes which led to the decision to provide an alternative transportation mode; how the proposed system will integrate with other modes of transportation; alternative planning considerations studied for the alignment and how the adopted alignment evolved; construction impacts of implementation; handicapped needs; system expandability; performance measures; and maintenance facility planning.
