This week, LAX released a new fly-through video showing the planned people mover that will connect to the Metro Crenshaw/LAX rail line. The planned $5 billion people mover project, called LAMP (Landside Modernization Access Program), will have six stations: three in the central terminal loop, and the others connecting with Metro, parking, and a consolidated rental car hub.

The new video expands on this earlier LAX video that features more historical context.

For the complete picture, see also the recent Metro Crenshaw/LAX fly-through video. The Crenshaw line is more than two-thirds complete, and expected to open in October 2019.

L.A. World Airports, which operates LAX, is moving forward with its people mover project, including clearing a remaining site by eminent domain. The LAMP project had planned to break ground this year, with construction anticipated to be complete in 2023. That schedule may be changing as the project faces a lawsuit from the operator of the Parking Spot.
