Tampa International Airport ConRAC Facility and APM System


The new multi-level Consolidated Rental Car (ConRAC) facility is located south of the economy parking garages and the new Automated People Mover (APM) system connects the ConRAC to the economy garages and the main terminal.

The ConRAC is a four-level 4,400 ready car return space with a multi-level quick turnaround (QTA) facility. The ConRAC is sized to accommodate all rental car families including multiple brands, new entrants and projected growth.

The 1.4-mile APM system is designed to accommodate approximately 2,300 passengers per hour per direction. Walter P Moore also designed the Main Terminal APM Station with easy and convenient access to the transfer, ticketing and baggage claim levels. This is one of three stations which provide an efficient, rapid and convenient connection between the Main Terminal and the ConRAC and the Economy Garages.

The APM is used by rental car customers, economy parking customers, airport employees, and customers who are dropped off or picked up at the new curbside located at the ConRAC APM station. This new curbside will also accommodate a facility drop off point for local bus rapid transit and other public commercial transportation vehicles.
