Welcome to the Regional Intermodal Transportation Center and Consolidated Rental Car Facility
The Airport was obligated to build the Regional Intermodal Transportation Center (RITC) in response to runway safety area requirements. The Federal Aviation Administration required that the previous Ready Return Lot next to Terminal B had to be relocated because it encroached into the runway safety zone. The Airport was given until December 2015 to clear this area and move the rental cars.
In addition to housing rental cars, the ground level of the RITC serves as a transit hub for bus riders and will provide direct access to and from the passenger terminal via the elevated walkway. Metro Bus, Burbank Bus, and Amtrak Bus service stop in the bus turn-around area. Additionally, Amtrak and Metrolink passengers stopping at the Bob Hope Airport Train Station are able to access the RITC via a street crossing leading straight to elevator and escalator access to the elevated walkway. Metrolink has provided a demonstration video on how to move between the Airport terminals and the Bob Hope Airport Train Station.
We have endeavored to minimize the impact of the car rental facilities relocation and to retain a high level of overall convenience for the customer.
- Care has been taken to provide covered pedestrian passage, starting across the airport roadway from the baggage claim exits, to the elevated covered walkway that conveys rental car customers to the rental car counters. Passengers who are new to the RITC can view this instructional video, which, in addition to providing directions to the Bob Hope Airport Train Station, also showcases the pedestrian passage between the terminals and the rental car facility.
- An escalator and elevator offer convenient access for all to the walkway, and the covered moving walkway belts keep actual walking distance and time to a minimum.
- Free wheelchair service to the rental car customer service counters is available at the main terminal entrance skycap station, and rental car personnel will summon skycap wheelchair service to the car rental counters as well.
- Smarte Carte kiosks are currently being installed at both ends of the walkway to allow for easy transport of larger pieces of luggage.
In addition to improving transportation options, the RITC is designed to resist large earthquakes and has the potential to serve as an emergency response center, when rail and aviation access to the region would play vital roles.
The RITC consolidates 11 rental car brands and over 1,000 rental car parking spaces in one building. Contact information for the rental car companies at Burbank Bob Hope Airport is as follows:
