Phoenix Sky Harbor International Airport’s PHX Sky Train® transports airport passengers between the 44th Street and Washington Valley Metro Light Rail station (PHX Sky Train® Station), the East Economy parking area and Terminal 4. The system is planned to ultimately connect to future terminals and the Rental Car Center. The innovative design of the PHX Sky Train® makes it the first APM to cross over an active airport taxiway (Taxiway Romeo) that is more than 100 feet tall and large enough for a Boeing 747 to pass underneath. The PHX Sky Train®’s Stage 1 campus of stations is LEED Gold-certified.
Lea+Elliott was the Train System Consultant for PHX Sky Train®, leading all phases of the planning, design, engineering, procurement and implementation of the Stage 1 and Stage 1A systems.
