Metro breaks ground on new Bob Hope Airport-Hollywood Way Metrolink Station

BURBANK, Calif. (KABC) -- Getting to and from the Bob Hope Airport in Burbank is already easy, but it's expected to be even easier. Officials held a groundbreaking Friday for a new Metrolink station.

The station will connect the Antelope Valley Line to the airport. The train won't go directly to the Burbank airport. It will drop off at a platform that will be built on San Fernando Road, about a mile away from the gates. Passengers would then board a free shuttle bus for the rest of the trip.

Sounds like a nice improvement in service. As is noted, Burbank is already ridiculously easy to get to, park, get to terminal and get to plane.

Bob Hope Airport officially opens Regional Intermodal Transportation Center
Posted June 27, 2014 by Anna Chen

Bob Hope Airport held a grand opening ceremony this morning for the $112 million Regional Intermodal Transportation Center (RITC). The RITC took two years to complete and is the largest capital project in the airport’s history. It also establishes the first direct rail-to-terminal connection at any Southern California airport.

The RITC is located immediately across the street from the Bob Hope Airport Station served by Metrolink and Amtrak. It will house a new bus transit station and rental car facilities and is connected to the passenger terminal via an elevated walkway.

Transit officials also announced the plans for a pedestrian bridge between the RITC and the existing Metrolink station along Empire Avenue. You can read the Metro staff report on the project here.
