Mission Bay Updates
no bart transbay service over labor day weekend
The TransBay Tube will be closed starting Saturday, September 5; re-opening Tuesday, September 8th in time for the morning commute. BART will provide a free 'bus bridge' from the 19th Street station in downtown Oakland to San Francisco, but service will be limited.
BART will be running normal service in both San Francisco and the East Bay; with the exception that trains will stop at Embarcadero Station in San Francisco and the West Oakland station will be closed.
Expect heavy traffic as there are several large scale events planned for the weekend, including a concert at AT&T Park.
The Mission Bay Shuttle's June, 2015 schedule had several changes:
- We have increased service from BART between 6am and 7:30am on the Mission Bay LOOP route which combines the East and West routes.
- We have added service after 10am on the LOOP route
- CALTRAIN schedules have been adjusted to coordinate better with incoming trains in the morning and departing trains in the evening. This route also now begins earlier, to connect with the 3:37pm departure.
- The TRANSBAY route also has some timing adjustments. It also has a new bus stop at 301 Main Street, which is closer to the bus terminal.

central subway construction update
Construction of the Central Subway continues to cause major disruptions along Fourth Street beween Brannan and King Streets.
According to the SFMTA, the intersection at 4th & King will be heavily impacted on weekdays between 9am and 3pm. Some crosswalks will be unavailable; no through traffic will be allowed on King to I-280; and just the outer lanes on both sides of 4th will be used as travel lanes.
Installation of new trackwork to connect the existing and new rail systems will also take place at 4th & King. This major construction work will be scheduled over three-day holiday weekends.
The tunnel starting at Embarcadero Station is also closed nightly at 9:30pm for construction and upgrades. Muni is running buses on Market Street, instead. (These closures do not affect the BART service along Market St.)
