PUBLIC APOLOGY COMES WITH JULY 1 REOPENING
OPEN LETTER / Mohammed Nuru, Board Chair, Transbay Joint Powers Authority--In September 2018 the Salesforce Transit Center was temporarily closed as a precaution after fissures were found in two beams on the bus deck of the new, four-block-long, one-million-square-foot facility. I am happy to report that the problem has been fixed and we can move forward with reopening the facility, which independent experts have deemed to be safe, resilient and ready to resume operations to serve the Bay Area.
|Fremont Street: 2 cracked beams fixed.|
|Independent oversight gives green light|
Plea to return.
The transit center is a safe, strong and sustainable facility and we are eager to welcome you back. From our five-acre world-class rooftop park complete with year-round free events and activities to our acclaimed public art program to efficient and reliable transit options, there are many reasons to come to Salesforce Transit Center.
|OK, the big, big baby burped, now let's see how things go during its toddler years.|
|Mohammed Nuru took plenty of the heat for the temporary, but serious, flaws that closed the barely new Salesforce Transit Center closure last fall. They fixed it and apologized. Onward.|
