A new Transit Center and neighborhood that will dramatically improve our regional transportation system and downtown San Francisco The Transbay Transit Center Project will replace the current Transbay Terminal at 1st and Mission streets in San Francisco with a modern regional transit hub connecting eight counties in the Bay Area and the State of California through 11 transit systems: AC Transit, Amtrak, BART, Caltrain, Golden Gate Transit, Greyhound, Muni, SamTrans, WestCAT Lynx, Paratransit and future High Speed Rail from San Francisco to Los Angeles/Anaheim. The current Transbay Terminal was constructed in 1939 and no longer meets current or future transportation needs of the region or state. The first phase of the project will create a new, 1 million square foot Transit Center with one above-grade bus level, ground floor and concourse-level retail and foundations for two below-grade levels serving Caltrain and future High Speed Rail. Phase I will also create new ramps that will connect to a new off-site bus storage facility and the San Francisco- Oakland Bay Bridge. A Transit Tower will be built adjacent to the Transit Center, providing additional financing for the project. Read more...
