Innovia APM is currently operating across 25 locations worldwide, which includes an urban system in Guangzhou in the country.

The technology has also been implemented at the world’s three busiest airports in Atlanta, US; Beijing, China, and London Heathrow in the UK.

São Paulo, Brazil, and the new King Abdullah Financial District in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia, are the other two areas where the advanced Innovia Monorail 300 system will be put to use.
