The Atlanta Airport Automated Guideway Transit System is comparable to the second or third busiest transit line in the US. The key quality indicators of system performance are discussed and current data reviewed. An outline of the current organization with some background on its evolution is followed by the staffing levels. The multifunction personnel philosophy is discussed along with some other human resource considerations. A summary of preventative maintenance scheduled for vehicles, central and other elements of the system is reviewed.
