Starting Tomorrow! Central Subway Special Service Opens
Central Subway special weekend service starts November 19 with shuttle trains between Chinatown-Rose Pak Station and 4th and Brannan.
Starting tomorrow, November 19, the four new Central Subway stations will open to the public with free special service, Saturdays and Sundays only, from 8 a.m. to 12 a.m. every 12 minutes.
This is a special opportunity for customers to ride between the new stations and get to know them before the service change in January.
To experience Central Subway special service, transfer at Powell Station from Muni Metro and BART by walking underground to the new Union Square/Market Street Station.
SFMTA Ambassadors will be on hand to help customers navigate the new stations. Looks for our bright orange SFMTA Ambassador vests, hoodies and hats!
At Chinatown-Rose Park Station, customers should listen to announcements and watch the displays for incoming train information. Trains may come into the station from either side.
In addition, displays will indicate train departures. This is because Chinatown-Rose Pak Station is the end of the line, and trains may layover for a few minutes for operators to take relief breaks.
From everyone at SFMTA, we are excited to share these new stations with you as we continue to prepare to link T Third Metro service between Sunnydale and Chinatown in January!
