Metrolink, L.A. Metro break ground on new station

Posted on June 21, 2013

Southern California’s Metrolink, the Los Angeles County Metropolitan Transportation Authority (Metro) and the Bob Hope Airport held a groundbreaking event for the Bob Hope Airport-Hollywood Way Metrolink Station.

The project will complement the existing Burbank-Bob Hope Airport Metrolink Station on the Ventura County Line and the Regional Intermodal Transportation Center (RITC) being constructed by the airport to accommodate a bus transfer facility and rental car facilities. The new Bob Hope Airport-Hollywood Way Metrolink Station and the Antelope Valley Line Infrastructure Improvement Strategy will also improve rail connectivity with the airport.

Metro has been coordinating with the Burbank-Glendale-Pasadena Airport Authority during the development of both the RITC and the new Bob Hope Airport-Hollywood Way Metrolink Station. Metro has allocated $3.7 million of Measure R funds towards development of this station.

While the existing Burbank-Bob Hope Airport Metrolink Station services both the agency’s Ventura County Line and Amtrak passengers, the new station will cater to Antelope Valley Line riders.

The new Bob Hope Airport-Hollywood Way Metrolink Station will be located only one mile from the airport terminals. Once this station is operational, in early 2015, the airport authority plans to operate a free shuttle bus service linking the terminal to this station.
