The Right Connections in Burbank
With the recent Grand Opening of a $112 million Regional Intermodal Transportation Center (RITC) at Bob Hope Airport (BUR) in Burbank, CA, travelers can make convenient ground connections via an elevated moving walkway linking the terminal with bus, rail, rental car and public parking facilities. Located across the street from an existing Metrolink/Amtrak station, the 850,000SF, 3-level RITC, designed by PGAL, includes a new bus transit station, a 2,000 space consolidated rental car center, 1,200 public parking spaces and bicycle parking.
The RITC is the largest capital project in the airport's history. It provides the first direct rail-to-terminal connection in Southern California.
The public parking component will replace the revenue spaces lost with development of the RITC. The rental car component includes ready/ return spaces, a customer service terminal, and multi-floor and elevated maintenance/ fueling/ car wash facilities. The regional bus component provides connectivity to the Airport and the heavy rail line, making this facility a truly intermodal complex for the Southern California area. The 1,200 LF elevated walkway with moving sidewalks provides an enhanced customer experience.
The facility's steel structure is designed for a maximum critical seismic event, or MCE. The project also integrates a 4-megawatt, roof mounted solar facility to help achieve the LEED Gold Certification desired by the Airport Authority.
