Plans have been submitted by Luton airport to create a mass passenger transit system between Luton Airport Parkway and Luton Airport. The 2.2km system would cost £200m and be fully automated.
A 1.3 mile automated rail link has been proposed by Luton Borough Council to connect Luton Airport to the nearby railway station. The £200m link will lead to the abolition of the buses that are currently in place. A heavy rail route has been ruled because of the difference in height between the railway line and the airport. The intention is to commence construction in 2017.
