Millions of passengers to move, hundreds of miles to negotiate and tight schedules to meet. Mass transit is just that, transporting massive numbers of people all day, every day. At thyssenkrupp Elevator, we design the solutions that keep your passengers on the move. Our expertise means we can coordinate around tedious public transportation schedules without your riders missing a flight, a train, a subway or a connection.
The Phoenix Sky Harbor International airport, which accommodates nearly a million passengers each day, needed to meet increased capacity demands while following stringent energy-efficiency guidelines. The project involved replacing and upgrading escalators and elevators without disrupting airport service. To do that, at least one escalator had to be operational for passengers 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. And when access to load in our equipment was restricted, ThyssenKrupp moved a wall to stay on schedule and ensure passengers got to their gates on time. The flexibility and adaptability of our team were key to the success of this project.
