The Salesforce Transit Center is opening for full transit service after eight years of construction on Sunday. This two-block-long, four-story-high regional transportation hub just south of Mission Street between Second and Beale, will serve people from all over the San Francisco Bay Area, improving travel times to the downtown area for commuters and travelers from all over the region.
The major transit center elements include:
- A Grand Hall entrance lobby and a rooftop public park.
- Two-block-long upper bus deck for AC Transit buses, WestCAT, Amtrak Thruway and Greyhound buses and Muni service to Treasure Island (#25).
- Street-level bus plaza serving seven major Muni lines.
- Multi-level building retail space, bicycle parking and administrative offices.
- Ancillary projects include a public plaza on Mission Street west of Fremont Street.
The Salesforce Transit Center will become the “Grand Central Station” of the west, a fully integrated transit hub capable of getting people to any major destination in the region from one central location using only public transportation. The original Transbay Terminal opened in 1939 and was a regional hub for more than 60 years. It was closed in 2010 to make way for a new world-class transit center that will serve the region.
While construction of the new Salesforce Transit Center took place, a Temporary Transbay Terminal served Muni and AC Transit for eight years, ensuring our customers were able to continue traveling to and from the heart of downtown San Francisco from all over the region.
The Transbay Joint Powers Authority (TJPA) manages and operates the Transit Center with the SFMTA as a partner providing technical support and design input for the project, particularly as it relates to transit power infrastructure for Muni buses and the design of the street-level bus plaza, which will be the terminus for the Muni 5, 5R, 7, 38 and 38R routes.
