SAN FRANCISCO, CA.- The Transbay Joint Powers Authority (TJPA) will officially open the Transbay Temporary Terminal and the close of the existing Transbay Terminal starting August 7, 2010. The Transbay Temporary Terminal, located on Howard and Main Streets, will serve as the temporary bus facility until the completion of the Transbay Transit Center at First and Mission streets in 2017.

The Transbay Temporary Terminal will serve AC Transit, Muni, Greyhound, WestCAT Lynx, Greyhound, SamTrans and Golden Gate Transit. The open air facility will serve AC Transit, Greyhound and WestCAT Lynx on the inside of the site and Muni, Golden Gate Transit and SamTrans on the perimeter of the site.

“We are very excited about the opening of the Temporary Terminal as it allows us to move forward with constructing what will be one of the first High Speed Rail stations in the country,” said Maria Ayerdi-Kaplan, Executive Director of the TJPA. “The Temporary Terminal will serve all of the current transit riders who use the Transbay Terminal until the new Transit Center opens its doors in 2017.”

The Temporary Terminal is an open air facility and will feature real time electronic signage, 24-hour on-site security and overhead canopies to protect passengers while they wait. A full list of bus stops at the Temporary Terminal is available at www.temporaryterminal.org

The Transbay Transit Center Project, which will replace the current Transbay Terminal with a new, multi-modal transportation center and centralize the region’s transportation network by accommodating eleven transportation systems—including Caltrain and High Speed Rail—will make public transit a more convenient option in the Bay Area, much as it is in other world-class cities.
