Double Deck Elevator is a type of elevator consists of two cabins attached together. Example, one car stops at even floors and the other stops at the odd floors. Depending on their destination, passengers can mount one car in the lobby or take an escalator to a landing for the alternate car.

Double-deck elevators save time and space in high-occupancy buildings by mounting one car upon another.

The world first double-deck elevators are installed in the Empire State Building by Otis in 1931.[1]
