November Lunch Program The San Francisco Central Subway Project

The Central Subway Project will construct a modern, efficient light-rail line that will improve public transportation in San Francisco. This new 1.7-mile extension of Muni's T Third Line will provide direct connections to major retail, sporting, and cultural venues while efficiently transporting people to jobs, educational opportunities and other amenities throughout the city. With stops in South of Market (SoMa), Yerba Buena, Union Square, and Chinatown, the Central Subway will vastly improve transit options for the residents of one of the most densely populated neighborhoods in the country, provide a rapid transit link to a burgeoning technology and digital-media hub, and improve access to a premier commercial district and tourist attraction.

The Central Subway Project is the second phase of the SFMTA's Third Street Light Rail Transit Project. Phase 1 of the project constructed a 5.1-mile light-rail line along the densely populated 3rd Street corridor. The first segment of the T Third Line opened to customers in April 2007, restoring light-rail service to a high transit-ridership area of San Francisco for the first time in 50 years.

Phase 2, the Central Subway Project, will extend the T Third Line from the 4th Street Caltrain Station to Chinatown, providing a direct, rapid transit link from the Bayshore and Mission Bay areas to SoMa, Union Square,and downtown. Four new stations will be built along the 1.7-mile Central

Subway Project alignment:
*4th and Brannan Station at 4th and Brannan streets (street level)
*Yerba Buena/Moscone Station at 4th and Folsom streets (subway)
*Union Square/Market Street Station on Stockton Street at Union Square (subway)
*Chinatown Station at Stockton and Washington streets (subway)

The Central Subway Project will contribute greatly to San Francisco's economic competitiveness and help secure the city's status as a regional, national, and global hub. It will provide a clean, pollution-free transit alternative that will reduce the environmental impact of transportation, save natural resources, reduce traffic congestion and improve transportation options for an underserved area of San Francisco.
