The Burbank to Los Angeles project section connects two key multi-modal transportation hubs, the Hollywood Burbank Airport and Los Angeles Union Station (LAUS), providing an additional link between Downtown Los Angeles, the San Fernando Valley and the State. 

The approximately 14-mile project section proposes to utilize the existing railroad right-of-way to the greatest extent possible, adjacent to the Los Angeles River, through the cities of Burbank, Glendale and Los Angeles with proposed stations near the Hollywood Burbank Airport and at LAUS.
