ASSESSMENT OF THE PASSENGER SHUTTLE SYSTEM (PSS) AT TAMPA INTERNATIONAL AIRPORT

The report is the second in a series of six to assess the systems at Seattle-Tacoma International Airport, Fairlane Town Center, Houston Intercontinental Airport, Tampa International Airport, Walt Disney World, and King's Dominion Amusement Park. In assessing systems at these sites, the overall objectives are to obtain engineering and operational data; obtain descriptive economic, system performance, and user perception data; and review the design, development, and implementation process. The purpose of the site reports is to provide a uniformly documented presentation of AGT installations for UMTA's AGT program, and to establish the state of the art of AGT systems for ultimate use in planning, evaluating, producing, and deploying future systems. This report contains the findings of an assessment of the Tampa International Passenger Shuttle System (PSS), an elevated, automated AGT system that provides passenger transit service between a landside terminal and remotely located airside terminals at the airport. The PSS at Tampa has been in successful operation carrying passengers between airside and landside buildings since 1971.
