AIRPORT DISTRICT — Local officials are lining up against a Metrolink proposal to cut service to Bob Hope Airport by 28%, calling the plan a shortsighted way to deal with anemic ridership figures. Metrolink officials contend that the average 500 daily passengers serviced by the eight Ventura County trains planned for elimination could be absorbed by higher-traffic lines, and that the proposal is the best way to save money while minimizing impacts to passengers. But Don Brown, a member of the Burbank-Glendale-Pasadena Airport Authority, pointed to the airport’s planned $120-million regional transportation center that would link the airport with passenger trains, shuttles, buses and taxicabs.

CITY HALL ? Burbank officials are telling state high-speed-rail representatives that without an airport station, life for the two proposed city stops could become more difficult. Representatives of the California High-Speed Rail Authority had planned to present two station alternatives to their board of directors as soon as May 6 in San Jose. But the Burbank City Council last week called on the representatives to consider as part of their environmental study a stop near Bob Hope Airport, arguing that a proposed $120-million regional transportation center there should not be isolated from high-speed trains.

The Rail 2 Rail program was launched Thursday at the airport's train station, and will allow riders to use tickets from Metrolink or Amtrak to travel from Los Angeles' Union Station to Burbank Airport using either service. "There are so many trains," Metrolink spokeswoman Sharon Gavin said.

DOWNTOWN — Area representatives derided a series of proposed Metrolink fare hikes and service reductions, contending that their renewed pledge to boost public transportation would suffer significantly under diminished service. The Burbank-Glendale-Pasadena Airport Authority on Monday unanimously opposed proposed cuts to Metrolink service at the Bob Hope Airport Train Station, challenging the wisdom of adjustments that could include significant service cuts to the Antelope Valley and possibly eliminate service from Camarillo and Oxnard.

Karen S. Kim AIRPORT DISTRICT -- The Los Angeles County Board of Supervisors have asked the county Sheriff's Department for a report on an April 20 incident in which a bomb threat at Burbank Airport delayed about 3,000 passengers and stalled flights for hours. "Anything that law enforcement and the airport, or added security at the airport, could do to ensure safety of people, we're all in favor of," said Chris Dickerson, press deputy for Supervisor Mike Antonovich.

Ben Godar Police acting on an anonymous tip Monday closed a runway at Burbank-Glendale-Pasadena Airport, along with a nearby street and a section of railroad track while they searched a truck for explosives. The threat turned out to be a hoax related to a labor dispute. CHP officials received word Saturday from an anonymous caller that a truck carrying explosives from Texas would arrive at the airport sometime Monday morning, police said. About 3 a.m. Monday, a security guard for a movie equipment storage lot near the airport noticed the truck parked near the corner of San Fernando Boulevard and Clybourn Avenue and called Airport Police.

BURBANK ? The Burbank-Glendale-Pasadena Airport Authority on Monday took the first step toward a possible $75-million regional transit center that would link the airport with passenger trains, shuttles, buses and taxi cabs. The authority voted 8-0 to channel $94,450 into an initial environmental review of the proposed regional transit center that would essentially create another hub for Amtrak and Metrolink. The project would run along Empire Avenue and connect with the Bob Hope Train Station platform.
