Public Transit Link to Bob Hope/Burbank Airport

I was unaware of the free shuttle service between Bob Hope (Burbank) Airport and the Red Line light rail station in North Hollywood. I read about it in a small item in the LA Times Travel section. The shuttles are free to riders, but operated by Super Shuttle, and run from 6 am to 10 pm. They don't seem to run on a schedule, but require a phone call for pick up, according to the website:

Also, both Metrolink and Amtrak do stop at the Airport. (There is an airport shuttle that will pick you up and take you to the terminal.

Also, the #222 Metro bus (which pulls up diagonally across the street from the Hollywood/Highland Station -- in front of the McDonalds restaurant, goes to Bob Hope (#1.50 fare/ 30 minutes). Get off at the corner of Hollywood Way & Thornton Av, cross Hollywood Way and enter the airport via the sidewalk on the right side of the road.

FYI, Metrolink & Amtrak trains to Bob Hope originate at Union Station in downtown L.A. and do not pass through Hollywood.

Anybody actually used the shuttle to the Red Line? I'm curious how well it works, especially given that there are some transit options at Burbank airport.

Anyone know of a good and hopefully direct way of getting to Pasadena from Burbank airport on pubic transit?

Metrolink requires going downtown first-- and operates limited hours. The shuttle to North HOllywood obviously isn't much help...

This question comes up from time to time, esp. around New Years.
