Officials at Washington Dulles International Airport will show off their new, $1.5 billion AeroTrain system, which will shuttle travelers from the terminal to the gate and replace the airport’s “mobile lounges.”

The airport has not yet said exactly when the AeroTrain will open to the traveling public. A media tour is scheduled for Monday morning. Airport officials previously have said they wanted the system up and running this month.

The new underground train system will have 29 cars and an average wait time of less than two minutes. Passengers currently ride 1960s-era buses called mobile lounges.

The debut of the AeroTrain was delayed when it failed some initial tests.
