New Valley Train-to-Plane Connection: L.A. Metro, Metrolink, Burbank Officials Celebrate Completion of New Metrolink Antelope Valley Line Station Opening May 14 to serve Hollywood Burbank Airport

Wednesday May 09, 2018

Elected officials, Metro and Metrolink officials and community stakeholders will dedicate the new Burbank Airport-North Metrolink Station that will open Monday, May 14. This will be the second Metrolink station at Burbank Airport. The existing station is on the Ventura County Line and the new station will be along Antelope Valley Line that runs between Los Angeles Union Station, the Northeast San Fernando Valley, Santa Clarita, Palmdale and Lancaster. The new $15-million station, with funding from Metro ($12.3 million) and the Hollywood Burbank Airport ($2.7 million), will make it easier to reach the Burbank Airport via Metrolink and will help reduce vehicles trips on the I-5 freeway and roads in airport-adjacent neighborhoods. Amenities at the new station include rail ticket vending machines, benches, bike racks and LED display boards showing arrival and departure times for trains, buses and planes. A pedestrian sidewalk and transit plaza will be built adjacent to the station platform and San Fernando Boulevard.
