Abstract:

The new Transbay Transit Center will include a multimodal terminal serving 11 transit systems and future high-speed rail from San Francisco to Los Angeles/Anaheim. This is an ambitious, forward-thinking project that will not only provide a much-needed upgrade to public transit, but will bolster the Bay Area's economy by reducing traffic congestion and related traffic pollution. In addition, the project is expected to help transform the once blighted area around the old terminal into a vibrant community.
