When people think of California, they think movies, entertainment, spectacular scenery, sunshine, and more sunshine-elements that combine for a very good life indeed. Universal City-North Hollywood, ideally situated in the eastern San Fernando Valley, embodies the best that California has to offer. At the foot of the canyon-sculpted Hollywood Hills and connected to downtown Hollywood by the deeply cut Cahuenga Pass, Universal City-North Hollywood benefits from proximity to a number of interstate and state highways, including Hollywood Freeway (101) and Ventura Freeway (101/134). Area residents hopping on the highway are just minutes from downtown Los Angeles, the St. Gabriel Mountains, coastal beaches, and glamorous neighbors like Beverly Hills, Santa Monica, and Malibu.

By Land, Air, and Sea

Located in the heart of San Fernando Valley, Universal City-North Hollywood residents and businesses profit from a well-designed transportation infrastructure. Served by 75 miles of freeways, 29 bus routes, 63 miles of passenger and freight railroad tracks, 72 trucking terminals, access to the largest ocean shipping port in the world, Los Angeles International Airport, and Burbank Glendale Pasadena Airport, businesses, manufacturers, and residents find it easy to get from one place to another-whether it’s downtown Los Angeles or to locales farther afield.

Six passenger lines arrive and depart from Burbank Airport, scheduling flights to 114 cities in the United States, Canada, Mexico, and Taiwan. Numerous air freight carriers, supplying area businesses a means of shipping and receiving goods, also fly in and out of Burbank Airport.

The Metropolitan Transportation Authority’s subway service and bus lines carry passengers from North Hollywood to downtown Los Angeles and points in between. In addition five stations in the Valley serve travelers booking a seat on Amtrak trains which run between San Diego and Santa Barbara.

The Port of Long Beach, Port of Los Angeles, Port Hueneme, all within minutes of Universal City-North Hollywood, provide shipping and receiving points for sea cargo ranging from chemicals and coal to food and steel scrap. As a result of major expansion of existing ports and Alameda Corridor rail/freight improvements, the ports will soon exceed more than 200 million metric revenue tonnage of goods. At the Port of Los Angeles, more than a half million passengers board cruise ships each year to travel to exotic ports of call.
