Burbank Airport Authority Presentation

On Monday September 20th, 2010, RailPAC President Paul Dyson attended the regular meeting of the Burbank-Glendale-Pasadena Airport Authority, the JPA that operates Burbank Bob Hope Airport.

On behalf of RailPAC Paul presented Authority President Frank Quintero with a plaque marking the occasion of the authorization by Burbank City Council to proceed with construction of the Regional Intermodal Transportation Center.

The new center will be built on existing parking spaces and will include a bus terminal, rental car facility, overbridge to connect to the Amtrak/Metrolink station, parking spaces for train passengers, and a moving walkway to the Terminals.  The facility will be funded by a fee on rental cars plus a $900,000 federal grant.  Target for completion is December 2012.
