Automated People Mover (APM) division




The Plane Train is Hartsfield-Jackson's automated people mover (APM). The Plane Train connects the domestic and international terminals with the Airport's seven concourses (T, A, B, C, D, E and F). The Plane Train is one of two people mover systems managed by the Airport's APM division. The other, the ATL SkyTrain, runs between the passenger terminal and the rental car center.
