BURBANK — Los Angeles County Supervisor Michael D. Antonovich, whose Fifth District includes Santa Clarita, joined officials at the opening Friday of the Bob Hope Airport Regional Intermodal Transportation Center.
“Thirty-six years after Senator Russell and I carried the legislation to enable Burbank, Glendale and Pasadena to acquire the facility from Lockheed, the Bob Hope Airport is now a major hub in our regional transportation system serving all of Los Angeles County and our neighboring counties,” Antonovich said.
Through a public-private partnership with the Burbank-Glendale-Pasadena Airport Authority, the MTA and local bus agencies, Metrolink and Caltrans, the facility will soon be connected to all the train service that runs through the area, including 31 daily Metrolink trains to Ventura County and 10 daily Amtrak trains, as well as 30 daily Metrolink trains to Lancaster, officials said.

Open to the public in January 2015, the Hollywood Way station will provide access to the million people who live along the Metrolink corridor between Burbank and the Antelope Valley.
The Empire Bridge will connect the current train station on the south into the transportation center and on to the terminals and transportation center, linking many buses from different agencies into the airport.
The regional transportation center will be connected to an Orange Line extension from Warner Center in the San Fernando Valley; a Gold Line extension from Azusa in the San Gabriel Valley; Metrolink and Amtrak trains from Orange County, San Bernardino County, and Riverside County using the future “Run-Through Tracks” at Union Station known as “Scrip” — the Southern California Regional Interconnector Project; and Northern California via the proposed California High Speed Rail System and Las Vegas via the Xpresswest system, officials said.
