The LAX people mover project broke ground in March 2019, and it won't actually be up and running until at least 2023. But you can now get a preview of how it will look and feel coming into Los Angeles International Airport by rail.

The people mover is an electric train that will transport travelers to and from terminals at LAX and a light rail station on Metro's LAX/Crenshaw Line. For certain Angelenos, that means making the trip to the airport (and back) entirely by rail.

Below we've rounded up a series of 3D models and images released by Los Angeles World Airports, which operates LAX.
