I got the chance to take a trip to Treasure Island and Yerba Buena Island to check out the development going on and I made a little video of my trip… enjoy…
This is pretty massive for the entire transit system, and has big implications for future HSR.
Hell yes! Here’s the map in question. Still very preliminary but it looks like they’re considering both a double-decker tunnel that would carry both BART and standard gauge rail, as well as constructing two separate tunnels on significantly different alignments. Looks like one major benefit of the two-alignment approach would be the addition of a Mission Bay BART station.
OMG a 4th & King transfer + Transit Center for Caltrain/HSR would be such a game changer. Also, thrilled that they’re considering finally bringing the regional transit into SF and not just stopping at Emeryville. The more I look into this map the more excited I get.
