Stockton and Ellis Street entrance to Powell Street Muni/BART Station to close

This entrance to the Powell Street Station, located next to the Apple Store at Stockton and Ellis streets, will close next Monday.

***UPDATE AUGUST 27: The Apple Store entrance to the Powell Street Station will remain open past August 27. We will provide additional information soon.***

Starting next Monday, August 27, the entrance to the Powell Street Station located at Stockton and Ellis streets will close to accommodate Central Subway construction. The closure of this entrance, also known as the Apple Store entrance, will be in effect for approximately six years to facilitate construction of the Central Subway tunnel and Union Square/Market Street Station.

When the Central Subway opens in 2019, this entrance will provide convenient access to the T Third Line at the future Union Square/Market Street Station. An underground concourse connection will link the Union Square/Market Street and Powell Street stations, allowing customers to transfer easily between the T Third Line and the BART and Muni Metro lines operating in the Market Street tunnel.

To facilitate access to Powell Street Station while the Apple Store entrance is closed, signage will direct customers to the nearest alternate entrance at 4th and Market streets.

More information is available in this press release from the SFMTA.

We appreciate your continued patience while construction is in progress.

    OF course no one has to walk any further from the Apple store to the actual Bart platform – they just won’t be able to do it underground. Horrors!
