San Francisco’s Central Subway to Open 19 November

The San Francisco Municipal Transportation Agency (SFMTA) has announced that the Central Subway will open in San Francisco on 19 November.

The new line will make its debut with a special weekend service, running from 8am to midnight every 12 minutes on Saturday and Sundays.

During these initial operations, passengers will be able to ride the new Central Subway for free and can become familiar with the four new stations: Chinatown-Rose Pak, Union Square/Market Street, Yerba Buena/Moscone and 4th & Brannan.

The Central Subway Project will improve public transportation in San Francisco by extending the Muni Metro T Third Line and providing a direct, rapid transit link between downtown and the existing T Third Line route on 3rd Street.

Throughout the weekend service, customers can transfer to the new Central Subway service at Powell Station from Muni Metro and BART by walking underground to the new Union Square/Market Street Station.

Beginning Saturday 7 January, SFMTA plans to start running the T Third line service via Central Subway seven days a week, providing a direct connection from Chinatown-Rose Pak Station to Sunnydale.
