19th International Conference on Automated People Movers and Automated Transit Systems 2024

Automated Transit for Smart Mobility

This conference will be 19th of a series of successful conferences that began in 1985 in Miami, Florida. Since that time, subsequent conferences have become the meeting place of professionals from around the world to share project experience, advanced technologies, and innovative ideas on the planning, design, implementation, and operations of automated people movers and automated transit systems. Conference attendees will include planners, engineers, APM and transit system owners and operators, government officials, system suppliers, prospective owners, educators, and students as they reflect on the past and look to the future.

The APM-ATS Conference has been around the world: Yokohama (1991), Paris (1996 and 2011), Las Vegas (1997), Copenhagen (1999), San Francisco (2001), Singapore (2003), Orlando (2005), Vienna (2007), Atlanta (2009), Phoenix (2013), Toronto (2016), Tampa (2018), Chicago (2020),* and most recently, Seattle (2022). We look forward to welcoming you to Atlanta!

*We made the difficult decision to cancel the 2020 conference because of the COVID pandemic; however, published proceedings are available based on papers that were submitted and approved.
