BURBANK (CBS) — Amtrak plans to offer half-price fares this weekend to passengers traveling between Union Station in downtown and Bob Hope Airport in Burbank, giving travelers another option during the upcoming closure of the San Diego (405) Freeway.

With the discount, the fare between downtown Los Angeles and Burbank on the Pacific Surfliner train will be $3 each way. The price for kids (ages 2-15), who are accompanied by an adult, will be $1.50 each way.

To obtain the discounted fare, use code x563. For reservations and schedule information, visit the Amtrak Web site.

    I do love the manner in which you have framed this particular difficulty and it really does provide me personally a lot of fodder for consideration. Nevertheless, through what I have observed, I just simply wish as the commentary pile on that people today stay on issue and don’t get started upon a soap box of the news of the day. All the same, thank you for this excellent piece and even though I do not go along with this in totality, I regard your perspective.
