As of this afternoon, the trams at MCO were back up in running.

WESH reports that according to airport officials, service to Gates 1 to 29 at the airport had been interrupted due to a mechanical issue earlier in the day.

We hope anyone impacted by the stalled trams made it to their final destinations safely.

If you are currently traveling and are utilizing the Orlando International Airport, there may be some technical difficulties affecting your travel.

According to a recent tweet from Orlando International Airport, the APMs which transport passengers from the main terminal to gates 1-29 are currently out of service. Initially it was just one of the APMs, but about an hour later we learned it was, in fact, both APMs.

The first tweet that Orlando International Airport tweeted out read: “One of two APMs between the Main Terminal and Gates 1-29 is currently out of service due to a mechanical issue. As crews work to correct the matter, we will open exterior walkways between both locations for passengers wishing to walk. Service will resume as soon as possible.”, which you can see below.

The second tweet from Orlando International Airport, which announced both APMs were out of order, read: “Update: Both APMs to Gates 1-29 are currently being serviced and walkways are open for passengers hoping to walk to their gate from the Main Terminal. We will also run buses to transport travelers as well. Updates will be provided as they are available”, which you can see below.

Due to the technical difficulties, the APMs cannot run with passengers and crews are currently working to correct this unfortunate situation. In the meantime, guests traveling can utilize the exterior walkways between both locations.

Orlando International Airport also stated they would be running buses to help transport travelers between these two locations.
