Bob Hope Airport held a grand opening ceremony this morning for
the $112 million Regional Intermodal Transportation Center (RITC). The
RITC took two years to complete and is the largest capital project in
the airport’s history. It also establishes the first direct
rail-to-terminal connection at any Southern California airport.
The RITC is located immediately across the street from the Bob Hope
Airport Station served by Metrolink and Amtrak. It will house a new bus
transit station and rental car facilities and is connected to the
passenger terminal via an elevated walkway.
Transit officials also announced the plans for a pedestrian bridge
between the RITC and the existing Metrolink station along Empire Avenue.
