San Francisco, CA – Today, the Transbay Joint Powers Authority (TJPA), owner and operator of the multimodal Salesforce Transit Center in downtown San Francisco, marked the important milestone of the State of California and the City and County of San Francisco’s full reopening by providing information on its important services and offerings at the Transit Center. The Transit Center and rooftop park have been open during the pandemic and will continue to provide important transit and retail services along with free rooftop park activities.
“We join the State of California and the City and County of San Francisco’s reopening milestone today that ends over a year of challenging times and provides the opportunity for the State’s full economic recovery,” said Interim Executive Director Nila Gonzales. “Salesforce Transit Center has been open during the pandemic and will continue to provide transit services through our transit partners that riders depend on; provide important services through our retail partners; and public open space with free rooftop park activities available to visitors.”

Bounded by Mission, Howard, Beale and Second streets, the four-block long multimodal Salesforce Transit Center meets the needs of a growing region and City with a 21st Century, world class transit center serving transportation systems throughout the Bay Area.
Throughout the pandemic, the Salesforce Transit Center has been open to the public providing important transit services daily through our transit agency partners.
