Bombardier INNOVIA C801 (APM 100) is an automated people mover (APM) train cars built by Adtranz (now Bombardier Transportation) for the use on the Bukit Panjang LRT line and the former Singapore Changi Airport Skytrain until March 2006. These train cars are mainly for airport connections and light rail in towns, operating by Automatic Train Control (ATC), making it fully automatic and driverless.
The train cars are also similar to the vehicles formerly used at Singapore Changi Airport Skytrain system in the early 1990s, jointly built by Westinghouse and Adtranz (acquired by Bombardier).
The C801 train cars are fully automated, without attendant, running on a system similarly to the C801A trains.
Trains can be coupled for two-car operations.
Rubber-tired wheels are used to run on a concrete track and windows mist within 6 meters of residential buildings, eliminating both noise and privacy concerns.
SMRT is considering a mid-life refurbishment of the existing 19 Bombardier INNOVIA C801 train cars.
If plans go through, it will be the first major overhaul for the C801 train cars. The refurbished train cars will have upgraded air-conditioning and air compressors together with an improved braking system.
Individual cars are given a three-digit serial number by the rail operator, SMRT Corporation, ranging from 101 to 119.
