Congratulations to Los Angeles World Airports for Earning the "Innovation of the Year" Award
We congratulate Los Angeles World Airports (LAWA) and the City of Los Angeles for winning the American Road & Transportation Builders Association (ARTBA) Innovation of the Year award. The award spotlights an idea within a P3 project that demonstrates how the development and/or application of new, innovative, and unique concepts help provide value for users" and this year, they chose LAWA's Consolidated Rent-A-Car Facility (ConRAC) project.
The ConRAC will relocate and centralize 23 existing car rental facilities scattered around the airport away from the central terminal and provide direct access to major freeways. Ultimately the facility will connect to an Automated People Mover to provide travelers with quick access to terminals. The combined projects, with a collective contract value in excess of $7 billion, will transform the airport and dramatically improve the experience for travelers at the world’s fifth busiest airport beginning in 2023. They are also part of the airport’s modernization program and represent the city’s first two P3s.
