Passenger Conveyors:

(a) Airport passenger terminals

(b) Metro rail

(c) Shopping Malls

The speed at which passengers are moved in passenger conveyors at one level is about 1.0-1.5 m/sec to make it comfortable. The speed of escalators is about 0.5-1.0 m/sec to make it comfortable for alighting and embarking passengers.
