"These elevators will take us beneath the surface of the planet below."
Major Rigosso[1]

Turbolifts,[2] also called elevators[3] or simply lifts,[4] were machines used for conveying people and objects to great speeds to different levels in a building,[5] starship,[6] space station,[7] or even tiered city. Said machine traveled in a shaft that extended vertically, allowing them to move up and down. In the case of a building, a turbolift could be either internal[4] or external to the structure.[5] The elevators installed in the Separatist dreadnoughts were cable-borne and equipped with braking mechanisms.[6]

On the planet Coruscant, turbolifts could be used to travel between the many levels of the ecumenopolis. A human girl named Anandra Milon and her younger brother Santigo Milon once used a turbolift to travel from Level 1997 to Level 1996, as did a stormtrooper who pursued them.[2] For transit to and from Quarzite, the Belugan homeworld, an immense turbolift sped travelers to an orbital space station.[8]

Turbolifts were also installed on and ran throughout both Death Stars, notably the Detention Blocks on the first battle station[7] and the throne room spire on the second.[9]
