The Bombardier Innovia APM 200 is an automated people mover system (APM) manufactured by Bombardier Transportation. The Innovia APM 200 is the successor to the Bombardier Innovia APM 100 (formerly known as the CX-100) and succeeded by Innovia APM 300. Designed as Bombardier's response to the popularity of the Mitsubishi Heavy Industries Crystal Mover, the advancements the Innovia APM 200 made over the Innovia APM 100 is a brand new aerodynamic design, allowing for greater speeds and tighter turns. The Bombardier Innovia features a full composite construction, and is offered with multiple end cap options.
Each individual Innovia APM 200 car weighs 14.4 tonnes (31,747 lb) empty, with a weight of 21.627 tonnes (47,679 lb) with passengers. The car is configured to allow eight passengers to sit down, while 92 additional passengers can stand at a density of 2.7-square-foot (0.25 m2) per passenger. If there is enough room two wheelchairs can fit in each Innovia APM 200 car, in addition to sitting and standing room. A maximum of four cars can be coupled together in a single train. Each car is air-conditioned, lit, and includes tinted windows attached to the composite shell body.
