The AGTS is currently operating near capacity given the existing system configuration and controls. DEN has the capacity for an extension of the AGTS track to accommodate an additional train on the system while meeting current headways, travel times, and levels of service to AGTS users.
The Master Plan Study is exploring options for expansion of the AGTS to support future terminal improvements and growth. Because the AGTS system is an integral part of the terminal, options and solutions must be developed in parallel with the terminal concepts.
Given that the AGTS at DEN is a “must-ride” system, the Master Plan Study is exploring options for enhancing the operational redundancy and contingency aspects of the system to ensure that the Airport can remain open and operational in the event of an unexpected outage of the AGTS.
