Thank you for taking transit and carpooling!
We're offering $100 Visa gift cards and Warriors tickets each week.

November 28, 2018

Dear Members:

TMASF Connects wants to reward commuters who are continuing to take public transportation to the old San Francisco Temporary Transbay Terminal during the closure of the new Salesforce Transit Center. We would also like thank carpools and vanpools for sharing their ride and helping to reduce traffic congestion.

This week, one lucky commuter who takes public transit to the old Temporary Transbay Terminal will win a pair of tickets to the Warriors vs. Minnesota Timberwolves game on Monday, December 10th! In addition, one lucky carpool will win a $100 Visa gift card for gas or coffee for their carpool! Prizes are awarded each week through the end of the year or until the transit center reopens.
Please note that if you've participated in either of these promotions previously, you're automatically eligible to win each week. Awards will be made to individuals and carpools randomly on a one-time basis. 

Salesforce Transit Center Closure
The Salesforce Transit Center will remain closed for the near future, according to the Transbay Joint Powers Authority. Buses are continuing to reroute to the old Temporary Transbay Terminal at Howard and Main Streets. Additionally, according to 511 , the I-80 Fremont Street off-ramp bus lane remains closed until further notice. Heavy traffic is anticipated in the downtown area and drivers are strongly encouraged to use alternate modes of transportation.

Below are the affected transit agencies and their current stops according to SFGate :

All 27 Transbay bus routes have been moved to the Temporary Transbay Terminal at Howard and Beale Streets.
Connecting bus services will continue to operate out of the Temporary Transbay Terminal in its current bus stop at 200 Folsom Street.

All Golden Gate Transit Financial District commute buses are returning to regular routing in downtown San Francisco and serving bus stops on Fremont Street. Golden Gate Transit Routes 30, 70, 101, and 101X will continue to serve Temporary Transbay Terminal bus stops while the Salesforce Transit Center remains closed. Buses will pick up and drop off passengers at First & Mission, as well as at Beale & Howard (drop off) and Main & Folsom (pick up).

5/5R: Stop on Howard at Main

The LYNX Transbay bus route have been moved to the Temporary Transbay Terminal at Howard and Beale streets.
BART will be running long trains and monitor passenger flow throughout commute hours to address impacts to BART service.

For transit riders using Clipper, please note that the Clipper machines at the Temporary Transbay Terminal were removed. Please also note that there are no SFMTA/Muni ticket vending machines at the Temporary Transbay Terminal.
Please monitor SFMTA for updates on the Salesforce Transit Center closure. As always, we will send an update as more information becomes available. For commute alternatives, please visit the  TMASF Connects website .
