It will have 7 air-conditioned, two car trains, 90 feet long, three on one track and four on the other, and will travel in opposite directions. Above each car there is a pair of rubber-tired four wheeled "bogies" running along the lower flange of an "I" beam track. Each of the automatically controlled trains has a capacity for 80 passengers.
The station has three platforms, including a center platform for passengers boarding on both tracks, with outside platforms for departing passengers. With these facilities two trains can unload and load safely and simultaneously. Visitors will get to and from the platforms via escalators.
