Turbolifts are small scale transportation units found on most starships and starbases. They allow vertical and horizontal movement around the ship or facility at relatively high velocities. For the comfort of passengers turbolifts are often fitted with inertial dampeners to reduce the effects of changes of speed.

a vacuum-lift within the Wheel.

A turbolift, vacuum-lift, vacuum elevator, or lift tube was an "elevator" powered by a repulsorlift and was used mostly to transport people or cargo through large ships, buildings such as those on upper Coruscant, or even space stations such as the Wheel and the Death Stars.

They were capable of reaching great speeds without personal injury. The devices were sometimes referred to as turbovators rather than turbolifts; usage varied from world to world. Centerpoint Station referred to its elevator system that ran through Hollowtown and through the various metal shells as turbovators.

Though they provided a similar function, the drop shaft was distinctive from the turbolift.[1]

Some lifts would play lift-tube music.
