Metrolink is showing off its new Burbank Airport North train station, which will officially open to the public Monday.
The train station is one of two next to the Burbank Airport and sits on Metrolink’s Antelope Valley Line, which has trains running between Lancaster and Union Station in Los Angeles.
On the other side of the airport is the existing Burbank Airport South train station, which sits on the Metrolink Ventura Line. It serves trains running between Ventura and Union Station.
The new North station is at Hollywood Way at San Fernando Boulevard. Unlike its counterpart South station, it requires a ride in a free van shuttle to get to the passenger terminals at the airport. Metrolink will celebrate the opening of the station with a community event from 7 to 10 a.m. Light refreshments will be served and prizes handed out by Metrolink and the airlines serving Hollywood Burbank Airport airlines.
Commuters on the Metrolink Antelope Valley Line will see their train schedules adjusted by up to seven minutes to accommodate the new stop. Times can be found online, or posted at the stations beginning Monday.
