Temporary Terminal

The Temporary Terminal, located on the block bounded by Folsom, Howard, Beale and Main Streets in San Francisco, provided temporary bus terminal facilities during the construction of the new Transit Center. Located just a few minutes walk from the former Terminal, the Temporary Terminal served AC Transit, WestCAT Lynx, Muni, Golden Gate Transit, SamTrans, paratransit, Amtrak and Greyhound passengers, providing service to more than 20,000 people daily.

The Temporary Terminal successfully operated from August 2010 until the opening of the new Transit Center in August 2018.

Although temporary in nature, the facility was thoughtfully designed and landscaped to be an attractive and welcoming gateway to San Francisco. The Temporary Terminal’s white canopies and clusters of palm trees provide an inviting and refreshing environment in the heart of the Transit Center District neighborhood. It also has interwoven beautiful, landscaped areas with necessary components of a modern transit facility bus terminal, such as real-time transit information signs and fare vending machines.

The Temporary Terminal was named the “2011 Transportation Project of the Year” by the San Francisco Bay Area Institute of Transportation Engineers.
