  (Redirected from Burbank Airport (Amtrak station))

Burbank Airport–South, referred to as Hollywood Burbank Airport by Amtrak and formerly known as Burbank–Bob Hope Airport,[2] is an unstaffed Amtrak and Metrolink rail station at Hollywood Burbank Airport in the city of Burbank, California. It is served by both Amtrak's Pacific Surfliner from San Luis Obispo to San Diego and Metrolink's Ventura County Line from Los Angeles Union Station to east Ventura. The ten Pacific Surfliner trains that serve the station daily and 29 Metrolink trains that serve the station each weekday connect arrivals from the airport to downtown Los Angeles' Union Station in about 30 minutes. Amtrak's Coast Starlight which travels between Seattle, Washington and Los Angeles also stops here.

A free airport shuttle transports passengers to and from the terminal area during the airport's operating hours,[3] although the station is a short walking distance from the terminals. Metrolink operates some trains as shuttles from the Hollywood Burbank Airport station to Los Angeles Union Station with intermediate stops at the downtown Burbank and Glendale stations.[4]

Of the 76 California stations served by Amtrak, Burbank was the 28th-busiest in FY2017, with 73,814 total passengers.[1]

HistoryEdit

The station was opened in February 1983 as an infill station on the short-lived CalTrain line. It would see less than one month of use by this service.

The station is part of a new intermodal transportation center which the Burbank City Council approved in late August 2010. The facility cost around $93 million. Groundbreaking occurred during the summer of 2012 and construction was completed summer 2014. It serves rail, air and bus travelers, as well as incorporating rental car facilities.[5]

Platforms and tracksEdit

TicketingEdit

This station contains Metrolink and Amtrak ticket machines; however, tickets to and from downtown LA (Union Station), and all stations between, are accepted on both Metrolink and Amtrak trains as part of the Rail2Rail program. Likewise, passengers with a valid Amtrak ticket between Hollywood Burbank and Union Station may also use it for transport on Metrolink trains.
