New Transbay Transit Center to be discussed at SPUR 

Last week, scores of local, state and federal politicians got to slap each other on the back and congratulate themselves during a lavish groundbreaking ceremony at the Transbay Transit Center.

Now, the real work begins.

A multimodal transit hub that will service 11 different operators, including the state’s high-speed rail project, the new Transbay Center has been hyped as the “Grand Central Station of the West.”

Today, city planners will discuss how the massive project fits into downtown San Francisco and what effects it will have on surrounding neighborhoods. David Alumbaugh of the San Francisco Planning Department will lead a forum discussion at the headquarters of SPUR, a local think-tank.

The talk will begin at 12:30 p.m. at SPUR’s headquarters on 654 Mission St. It is free to SPUR members and $5 for the rest of the public.
