Automated People Mover Standards, Part 4 , ANSI/ASCE/T&DI 21.4-08 (Published 2008)

This Standard covers the minimum set of requirements for maintaining automated people mover systems. Part 4 specifically provides information on Security, Emergency Preparedness, System Verification and Demonstration, Operations, Maintenance and Training, and Operational Monitoring. It also includes three informative annexes which offer to the user a series of options or instructions, but do not prescribe a specific course of action. These annexes are not a mandatory part of the Standard, and significant judgment is left to the user.
