Sec Pete Visits Central Subway

On September 8 we joined Speaker Nancy Pelosi, Mayor Breed, SFMTA Director Jeffrey Tumlin and other community leaders to welcome U.S. Secretary of Transportation Pete Buttigieg to San Francisco's Chinatown and federally-funded Central Subway project.

The city’s latest rail transit expansion consists of four new train stations – 4th/Brannan Station, Yerba Buena/Moscone Station, Union Square/Market Street Station and Chinatown-Rose Pak Station.

The project is in its final stages of testing and will open on November 19 for free weekend-only service between Chinatown Rose-Pak and 4th/Brannan stations. “The November opening represents a promise fulfilled to the Chinatown community to provide better local and regional transit connections,” said Rafael Mandelman, Transportation Authority Board Chair. “The Transportation Authority was glad to support the project with $215 million from various sources, including the half-cent sales tax program.”

The extended T-Third Street line expands regional and local connectivity north from the 4th Street Caltrain Station to Chinatown while creating jobs and supporting the city’s recovery.
