The Many Ongoing Public Transportation Projects of the Bay Area
From the Central Subway to the Geary Boulevard Bus Rapid Transit Line to the Caltrain electrification, there’s plenty going on in Bay Area public transit. An article by Michael Cabanatuan maps and outlines the region's 11 biggest transportation projects, starting with the Central Subway. "Muni’s Central Subway will carry passengers from the Caltrain terminal down the middle of Fourth Street, descend into a tunnel between Bryant and Harrison streets and make a subterranean journey beneath the busiest parts of the city — passing under the BART tracks and heading below Stockton Street — to arrive in Chinatown’s Washington Street Station," Cabanatuan writes.
While most of these projects are public transit related, the San Rafael Bridge bike path is also scheduled to open in a few months, as well as new carpool lanes set to reach San Jose, San Francisco, Oakland, and beyond.
