|Terminal passenger links
The concourses are connected by a pedestrian walkway, which begins at the terminal building and passes under the center of each concourse.
In addition to a pedestrian walkway, the Transportation Mall also features an automated people mover. This has a station at the east end of the main terminal for passengers entering the Transportation Mall after passing through security (this station also serves as the station for Concourse T), and a station at each of the remaining five concourses.
There is an additional station for the Baggage Claim area, which is located directly underneath the terminal building.
