Automated People Mover Standards Part 3 (ANSI/ASCE/T&DI 21.3-08) establishes minimum requirements for the design, construction, operation and maintenance of automated people mover (APM) systems. Collectively, this four volume Standard presents the requirements to assure the safety and performance of APM systems. Part 3 has been extensively revised, and 21.3-08 replaces 21-00. This part provides information on electrical systems, stations and guideways. This Standard will be useful to transportation engineers, safety engineers and contractors of APM systems, as well as to anyone who owns, operates, builds, maintains, designs, tests, insures, oversees or certifies APMs or other innovative technology transit systems, such as magnetic levitation, air cushion and monorail systems.
