Abstract: The Hawaii Department of Transportation, in planning to meet passenger demands over the next 20 years, is providing for expanded terminal buildings. The expanse of the airport requires a modern transit system to handle domestic and international passengers. The DOT selected an APM system to be constructed adjacent to gates and terminal buildings. The HIA APM, currently under implementation, will initially be a 12 station, 7000 feet (2134 meters), dual lane AGT system. It will have two modes of service: one for arriving international passengers and one for domestic passengers. These dual modes will operate concurrently on the same guideway. The elevated guideway structure will weave through the existing airport terminal complex. The normal domestic service will include 7 stations in each direction of a pinched loop. International trains will follow more than one route; picking passengers up from one of three boarding stations and delivering them to one of two deboarding stations, a total of six distinct routes. At peak international arrival periods it will be possible to have four trains alternately running the international routes and two trains running the domestic route. (A total of six trains operating at once.) The peak passenger load hours for each mode of operation are not expected to occur simultaneously, but will likely occur consecutively.
