T Third Back In Action
The T Third Line train is set to resume service Monday, April 1st, and that's no April Fools’ joke!
After 10 weeks of bus substitution needed to allow for construction at the UCSF Mission Bay platform, the T Third will resume train service on Third Street from Embarcadero to Sunnydale.
We’ve been hard at work demolishing the inbound and outbound platforms, performing rail and utility work, and constructing a 320-foot platform that will have the capacity to hold approximately 700 customers at one time and serve four, two-car trains. This Muni Metro platform upgrade aims to improve public transit, access to and from Mission Bay as the neighborhood quickly builds more retail, housing and entertainment venues.
The SFMTA has been constructing a new center platform along 3rd Street to service both the inbound and outbound trains and greatly expand transit capacity for large crowds, in anticipation of the new Golden State Warriors’ arena.
*Please note, the platform at UCSF Mission Bay will be out of commission through April as construction on the platform continues. Stay tuned for an official opening date.
