Bombardier Transportation replaced 12 of Miami Metromover’s vehicles with INNOVIA APM 100 cars in 2008. The new vehicles feature an aesthetic change to the carbody, wireless transmission of on-board CCTV, improved diagnostic and troubleshooting technology, enhanced corrosion resistance and improved air-conditioning.
The original automated people mover system was supplied by Bombardier in 1986. At that time, the City of Miami claimed two “firsts” in the US: it introduced a downtown people mover and integrated its fully automated system into a mass transit network. The Metromover was subsequently expanded in 1994 to a length of 7.1 km (4.4 mi.) with a total fleet of 29 vehicles.
