Driverless Subway at Munich Airport Opened

By  Monday, 22.2.2016, 16:01    General News

A fully automated driverless subway will move passengers at the Munich Airport. The two-rail subway will connect the Terminal 2 and the new satellite terminal by three trains, each with four wagons. The modern passenger transport system (PTS) was opened today (February 22) by the Bavarian Finance Minister Markus Söder. The subway will drive the 382 metre distance at 25 km/h. The subway has been developed and will be maintained and operated by Canadian rail vehicle manufacturer Bombardier Transportation GmbH.

The new satellite Terminal at the Airport Munich is set to begin operating on April 26. The new building will see over 11 million passengers at its 52 gates. The passengers will no longer have to be driven to the planes by bus, as it’s often the case now.
