UPDATE ON TEMPORARY CLOSURE OF SALESFORCE TRANSIT CENTER

The Salesforce Transit Center is temporarily closed. In September 2018, workers discovered two fissures in steel beams on the bus deck above Fremont Street. After several inspections and out of an abundance of caution, the Transbay Joint Powers Authority (TJPA) temporarily closed the Transit Center.

This is a localized issue within the Transit Center. The TJPA’s contractor installed a multi-level shoring system at Fremont and First streets as inspections and monitoring continue. No additional fissures have been found.

The TJPA is conducting a thorough and expeditious investigation of the cause of the fissures and will commence designing a permanent repair when the cause is determined. The Metropolitan Transportation Commission is also conducting an independent review of the cause and the ultimate repair.

Transit agencies are providing bus service out of the Temporary Transbay Terminal at Howard and Main streets. Commuters are encouraged to call 511 or go to 511.org for up-to-date transit information, or to contact their bus operator directly.

We apologize for the impacts to our transit riders and the public for this temporary closure. It is an inconvenience and we are committed to reopening the transit center as soon as safely possible.
