Starting Sept. 1, Burbank Local Transit will be known as Burbank Bus. The name change will be accompanied by two new fixed-route services serving downtown Burbank and the commercial and residential areas around Bob Hope Airport. According to the city, the Airport Area Shuttle and the Downtown Shuttle will have increased capacity, improved frequency and allow for connections between Metrolink, Burbank Bus, Metro Glendale Beeline and LADOT transit programs. Both shuttles will operate from about 5:30 a.m. to 10 a.m. and 2:45 p.m. to 7:45 p.m. Monday through Friday. “The introduction of the new Airport and Downtown Shuttle services are one of the many steps being taken to improve the City’s overall transit program,” said Transportation Services Supervisor Andrew Carrasco in a statement. “The City is aggressively working to modernize its transit fleet, maintain a high level of customer service, and reduce congestion within the City.” For route and schedule information, call (818) 246-4258.
