Burbank-Bob Hope Airport is an unstaffed Amtrak and Metrolink rail station at Bob Hope Airport in the city of Burbank, California. It is served by both Amtrak's Pacific Surfliner from San Luis Obispo to San Diego and Metrolink's Ventura County Line from Los Angeles Union Station to east Ventura. The ten Pacific Surfliner trains that serve the station daily and 29 Metrolink trains that serve the station each weekday connect arrivals from the airport to downtown Los Angeles' Union Station in about 30 minutes. The Coast Starlight from Seattle and Emeryville also stops here.

A free airport shuttle transports passengers to and from the terminal area during the airport's operating hours,[2] although the station is a short walking distance from the terminals. Metrolink operates some trains as shuttles[3] from the Bob Hope Airport station to Los Angeles Union Station with intermediate stops at the downtown Burbank and Glendale stations.

The station is to become part of a new intermodal transportation center which the Burbank city council approved in late August 2010. The facility is to cost around $93 million. Groundbreaking occurred during the summer of 2012 and construction will be completed by summer 2014. It will serve rail, air and bus travelers, as well as incorporating rental car facilities.[4]

Of the 74 California stations served by Amtrak, Burbank was the 35th-busiest in FY2012, boarding or detraining an average of approximately 129 passengers daily.[5]

Ticketing to and from downtown LA Union Station (Rail2Rail)

The station contains only Metrolink ticket machines; however, tickets to and from downtown LA (Union Station), and all stations between, are accepted on both Metrolink and Amtrak trains as part of the Rail2Rail program. Likewise, passengers with a valid Amtrak ticket between Bob Hope and Union Station may also use it for transport on Metrolink trains.
