Videos: New Dulles AeroTrain

Below are two videos I took of the new Washington Dulles International Airport people mover called AeroTrain. The futuristic, fast, frequent, clean and efficient trains and the tunnels they run through are marvels of engineering.

The first phase of the AeroTrain system zips people along 3.78 miles of track from the A, B and C concourses in the midfield terminal to the baggage claim area in the main terminal. There are plans to eventually extend the AeroTain system to the D concourse so it will make a full loop around the airport.

Here are the videos. Hopefully you get a sense of how fast these cars are. It is an example of what is possible when financing, imagination and technology meet to provide seamless transportation for commuters.
