San Francisco Welcomes Central Subway, Connecting Chinatown to Southeastern Neighborhoods

In January, San Francisco opened its new T Third line route, providing a direct Metro connection between Sunnydale and Chinatown-Rose Pak Station. Service runs Mondays through Fridays, 6 a.m. to midnight every 10 minutes and Saturdays and Sundays, 8 a.m. to midnight every 12 minutes. The new T Third line vastly improves transportation to and from some of San Francisco’s most densely populated areas and major shopping corridors, expanding transit options and new connections.

The new T Third route will travel north to the new Central Subway from 4th & King platform. It will no longer turn onto King Street or run along the Embarcadero and the Market Street subway. Also, the K Ingleside will now travel between Balboa Park and Embarcadero Station.

As the lead partner in two joint ventures, WSP USA helped complete twin, bored tunnels that extend light rail transit service into the heart of Chinatown.
