We study the dynamic behavior of an elevator induced by a periodic inflow of passengers. An elevator schedule is closely related to the dynamics. We present the modified circle map model for the dynamics of the elevator traffic. The motion of the elevator depends on both loading parameter and inflow period. The elevator displays the periodic and irregular motions with varying both loading parameter and inflow rate.
