Regional Intermodal Transit Center (RITC) at Bob Hope Airport (BUR)
At three levels and 850,000 square feet, the Regional Intermodal Transit Center at Bob Hope Airport in Burbank, California will serve multiple modes of transportation. The RITC accommodates airport public parking, rental cars, regional buses, bicycles, and a connection to the heavy rail line at the Bob Hope Airport Station.
The airport public parking component replaces the revenue from spaces lost with the development of this facility. The rental car component includes ready/return spaces, a customer service building, and multi-floor and elevated facilities for car maintenance, fueling, and washing. 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.
To accommodate this land-strapped site within the growing Burbank-Glendale-Pasadena market, a 1,200-linear-foot elevated walkway with moving sidewalks provides safe transport to travelers from the RITC to airport terminals.
The RITC’s unique structural design was built to withstand a maximum critical seismic event (MCE). The project also integrates a four-megawatt roof-mounted solar facility that will help achieve the LEED Gold certification desired by the Airport Authority.
