Officials break ground on transit center at Bob Hope Airport

Officials broke ground this week on a long-planned $112.6-million transit center at Bob Hope Airport in Burbank.

The 520,000-square-foot complex is expected to open in summer 2014, and officials say it will make using the airport easier for commuters.

The center will connect the airport with a new bus transit station and the existing Metrolink and Amtrak train station.

It would replace the airport’s rental car facilities, which are too close to a runway.

Officials approved the center, which is the largest capital project in the airport’s history, in 2010. Read more here in the Burbank Leader.
