TRB’s Airport Cooperative Research Program (ACRP) Report 37A: Guidebook for Measuring Performance of Automated People Mover Systems at Airports is designed to help measure the performance of automated people mover (APM) systems at airports.
The guidebook identifies, defines, and demonstrates application of a broad range of performance measures encompassing service availability, safety, operations and maintenance expense, capacity utilization, user satisfaction, and reliability.
The project that developed ACRP Report 37A developed the set of forms below that are designed to help periodically compile the necessary data for input into the overall performance measurement process.
Form A: System and Service Descriptive Characteristics
Form B: Airport APM Performance Measures Page 1 of 2
Form B: Airport APM Performance Measures Page 2 of 2
Passenger Satisfaction Survey
The project also developed an interactive Excel model
containing spreadsheets that can be used to help track and calculate system-wide performance and service characteristics.
The set of forms and Excel model are only available electronically.
ACRP Report 37A is a companion to ACRP Report 37
: Guidebook for Planning and Implementing Automated People Mover Systems at Airports, which includes guidance for planning and developing APM systems at airports.
In June 2012, TRB released ACRP Report 67
: Airport Passenger Conveyance Systems Planning Guidebook that offers guidance on the planning and implementation of passenger conveyance systems at airports.
