Construction of Burbank Airport-North Metrolink Station to start March 21
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.
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.

Metro Keeps LA Moving
The Long Range Transportation Plan (LRTP) is Metro’s roadmap to improve mobility, provide more transportation options, stimulate our local economy, and create jobs. The vision of this program is to enhance our public transit program by investing in our bus system while expanding our rail system. The plan is also delivering highway improvements such as new carpool lanes and projects that are easing freeway bottlenecks for both auto and truck traffic. And, the plan invests in many other programs, including transit operations, highway maintenance, local street improvements, bicycle and pedestrian connections, and transit services for the disabled.
Metro Bike Share is Here!
The Metro Bike Share has launched in Downtown Los Angeles! With up to 1000 self-service bikes and up to 65 stations available 24 hours a day and 365 days a year, Metro Bike Share will offer convenient round-the-clock access to a fleet of bicycles for short trips and to get to transit on your schedule. Metro Bike Share will be an additional public transportation option for Angelenos and visitors to get around Downtown Angeles. It is fast, fun and affordable!
The Metro Bike Share station network will provide about twice as many bike parking spaces — or what we refer to as “dock points” — as there are bikes. This maximizes available bike share parking when you arrive at your destination station. You will be able to see real-time bike and dock availability on the app and online station map.
If you already have a Metro TAP card, you can register it and purchase a Monthly or Flex pass. If you don't have a TAP card, purchase a pass and you will receive a shiny new Metro Bike Share registered TAP card.
