The Burbank Airport Station will be located adjacent to Hollywood Burbank Airport in Burbank and the planned Hollywood Way Metrolink Station, near the intersection of N Hollywood Way and N San Fernando Road. The station will have intermodal connections to the airport and the newly opened Regional Intermodal Transit Center (RITC). The RITC is a three-level, 850,000 facility that serves multiple modes of transportation, including airport public parking, rental cars, regional buses, bicycles and eventually a connection to high-speed rail.
In November 2018, the Authority’s Board of Directors concurred with the staff recommended State Preferred Alternative for the Burbank to Los Angeles project section. The State Preferred Alternative is the shared urban rail corridor build option that features two electrified tracks for high-speed rail, Metrolink and Amtrak and keeps a minimum of two mainline tracks for freight movement within the existing corridor. The Draft Environmental Document for this project section is anticipated to be released in fall 2019.
The Hollywood Burbank Airport is also in the process of a proposed Replacement Passenger Terminal project to upgrade their facilities. View factsheet for more information.
In May 2018, Metrolink opened its new Burbank Airport North train station, providing a better connection/service for travelers on the Antelope Valley line (Palmdale/Lancaster to LAUS) approximately 1 mile from the existing terminal, but only about half a mile from the future terminal.
The City of Burbank and the Authority are working together to develop a station area plan. This joint effort will guide land use changes in the station area, and the improvements associated with high-speed rail, to promote economic development, encourage station accessibility, and enhance regional mobility.
