Construction of the Burbank Airport-North Metrolink Station will begin on March 21 at the northwest corner of Hollywood Way and San Fernando Boulevard in Burbank. The $15-million project is expected to be completed in the spring of 2018. Metro contributed $12.3 million of the project funds, and the Burbank-Glendale-Pasadena Airport Authority contributed $2.7 million.
The Burbank Airport-North Metrolink Station will be on Metrolink’s Antelope Valley Line and will be located between the Sun Valley and Downtown Burbank stations. The Hollywood Burbank Airport is already served by a station on Metrolink’s Ventura County Line. Both lines also serve Los Angeles Union Station — the region’s busiest transit hub — and will make it easier to travel between downtown Los Angeles and Burbank Airport.
The new Burbank Airport North-Metrolink station will be approximately one mile from the current airport terminal. Passengers will be able to reach the station via a free shuttle to be operated by the Burbank-Glendale-Pasadena Airport Authority. The new rail station will also be within walking distance of the planned new terminal that will replace the current terminal, as well as a proposed mixed-use development.
