TRB’s Airport Cooperative Research Program (ACRP) Report 67: Airport Passenger Conveyance Systems Planning Guidebook offers guidance on the planning and implementation of passenger conveyance systems at airports.
The guidebook describes best practices and specific design considerations and presents decision-making frameworks for implementing passenger conveyance systems.
For the purposes of ACRP Report 67, passenger conveyance components include escalators, elevators, moving walkways, and passenger assist vehicles/carts.
To provide a comprehensive guide for evaluating passenger conveyance systems at airports, a database was designed and developed with information collected from the five airports. The database is included with the print version of the report as a CD-ROM.
The CD-ROM is also available for download from TRB’s website as an ISO image. Links to the ISO image and instructions for burning a CD-ROM from an ISO image are provided below.

Automated people mover systems, personal rapid transit systems, and shuttle bus systems are not covered by ACRP Report 67.
The subject of automated people movers was covered in the following two previous ACRP reports:
• ACRP Report 37
: Guidebook for Planning and Implementing Automated People Mover Systems at Airports
• ACRP Report 37A
: Guidebook for Measuring Performance of Automated People Mover Systems at Airports
(Warning: The ISO. CD-ROM is a large file and may take some time to download using a high-speed connection.)
