An elevator in main engineering

An alternate reality elevator

An elevator was a piece of technology that was used to travel to various floors of a building, starship, or facility.

Elevators were used on Earth as early as the late 20th century. Mercy Hospital in San Francisco had separate elevators for visitors and employees with patients, the distinction being communicated using signs. Two interns at Mercy Hospital were discussing the different views of the doctors Gottlieb and Weintraub when James T. Kirk, Gillian Taylor, and Leonard McCoy joined them in an elevator. (Star Trek IV: The Voyage Home)

Turbolifts were sometimes referred to by the more common term elevator. When Saavik halted one of the Enterprise's turbolifts to inquire of Admiral Kirk how he had beat the Kobayashi Maru scenario, he didn't answer. By the time Kirk finally resumed the turbolift's course and the doors opened, an irate Doctor McCoy was waiting for them. His first words upon seeing them were "Who's been holding up the damn elevator?" (Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan)

An elevator was in use in main engineering aboard the Federation starship USS Enterprise-D in 2364 to travel from the first to the second floor. (TNG: "Encounter at Farpoint", "Lonely Among Us", "Coming of Age", "The Drumhead", "The Game")

For using the elevator in the Tower of Commerce, Ferengi had to pay seven strips of latinum. (DS9: "Family Business")
