Glendale-Burbank is a defunct Pacific Electric rapid transit line that was operational from 1902 to 1955 in Southern California, running from Downtown Los Angeles to Burbank, with short lines terminating in Downtown and North Glendale.

The line was built by the Los Angeles Pacific Railroad. On March 19, 1906, an agreement was reached to sell all the Los Angeles Pacific Railroad lines for $6 million to Henry Huntington’s Pacific Electric Railway.
