SF Examiner on the Central Subway Project: It’s time to get onboard

The Central Subway will extend Muni’s T Third Line through central San Francisco.

In today’s San Francisco Examiner, the editorial board strongly endorses the Central Subway project, saying the extension of the T Third Line through SoMa, Union Square and Chinatown “will be a major asset to San Francisco”:

“It is time for everyone to get onboard with the Central Subway project — the largest Muni project in recent years.”

The editorial board writes that the 1.7-mile Central Subway will enhance the city’s transportation network by connecting SoMa and Chinatown – “one of the fastest-growing sections of The City with one of the densest neighborhoods in the nation” – while extending the T Third Line, “a 5.1-mile light-rail line that has done much good by connecting downtown with the southeastern neighborhoods of The City.”

The T Third Line is projected to become Muni’s most heavily used line soon after the completion of the Central Subway. It will connect transit customers with vibrant neighborhoods, crucial job centers, premier commercial districts and world-renowned tourist destinations, making it a worthy and needed investment in public transportation in San Francisco.
