Leading solution for urban and airport transit

The INNOVIA APM 300 system embodies the evolution of successful and dependable transit operations over many years. These systems operate on dedicated guideways and are characterized by exceptional route flexibility, outstanding availability and high efficiency in terms of passenger capacity, energy consumption and land use.

The INNOVIA APM 300 system is a driverless transportation system specially designed to serve airports and dense urban areas.
