The Transbay Terminal will provide an essential link within the regional transportation services supporting the San Francisco Bay Area, serving the region well into the 21st century. The design accommodates the current and future needs of the bus and rail operators and provides a signature building for public transportation in downtown San Francisco.
The project includes a 600,000 square foot multi-level bus/rail facility that will accommodate 25,000 passengers per hour and link bus transit with commuter rail and the planned high-speed rail connection to Los Angeles. Additional elements include new ramp connections to the San Francisco Bay Bridge, a bus parking facility, a temporary terminal, and up to 6 million square feet of high density residential and mixed-use development on sites immediately adjacent to the Terminal facility.
The building features a flowing glass roof structure that provides natural lighting and ventilation and is the touchstone of a sustainable design that celebrates transit and creates a welcoming public arrival into the city.
