Inter-terminal train (IAH)

The inter-terminal train at George Bush Intercontinental Airport (IAH) is the older of two separate inter-terminal people movers currently operating at the airport in Houston, Texas. Originally opened with the airport, the train system was replaced in 1981 with a WEDway system, a company formed by the then-named WED Enterprises unit of the present-day Disney Enterprises.

The inter-terminal train is the only WEDway people mover built by the Walt Disney company outside of a Disney property. Mechanically it is the same design as the PeopleMover in the Magic Kingdom's Tomorrowland. The design permits tight cornering necessary along portions of the basement route, and is unusual in that on-train station announcements and audible warning messages are actually provided by a trackside audio system through openings in the tops of the vehicle carbodies.

The system is presently maintained and operated by Johnson Controls.
