Mirage-TI Tram End of Life Overhaul

The Mirage Hotel & Casino recently completed the end-of-life overhaul of several major subsystems for the mirage-TI automated people mover (‘Tram’) system in Las Vegas, Nevada. Jakes Associates Inc. was selected to manage this project, which included the replacement of the automated train control (ATC) system, key propulsion equipment (such as primary drive motor, brake control unit, and other), network and communications systems improvements, station improvements (including new platform screen door systems), and limited refurbishment activities of both vehicles, including new air conditioning systems, chassis components, air drier system, and train door controllers. JAI also provided management and oversight services for the replacement of drive bull wheel seals and bearings, and oversaw the design, construction, and installation of a new system return wheel. JAI also managed permitting activities required by Clark County ATS regulations. The improvements accomplished as part of this project has resulted in the extension of the system’s life for decades to come.
