Nearly a dozen transit agencies began dropping and picking up passengers last month at Beale and Main streets, known as the temporary Transbay Terminal, but what is to become of the terminal’s First and Mission home?
The Transbay Joint Powers Authority has the answer. A community meeting will be held Wednesday to provide an update on demolition of the Transbay Terminal from noon to 6 p.m. Wednesday at the 201 Mission Street, Suite 2100, home of the joint powers authority.
The original terminal was built in the 1930s as a train station before being changed to include buses in the 1950s. Demolition of the existing building, which will be replaced with a $1.6 billion terminal for both buses and trains, was expected to begin last month.
The new Transbay Terminal is expected to be open in August 2017 and will be the San Francisco stop for the controversial High Speed Rail project.
