It’s been a long time coming, but San Francisco’s long-awaited Central Subway is finally fully opening with daily service starting January 7, 2023.

The Central Subway Project aims to improve public transportation in San Francisco by extending the Muni Metro T Third Line through SoMa, Union Square and Chinatown. By providing a direct, rapid transit link between downtown and the existing T Third Line route on 3rd Street, the Central Subway will vastly improve transportation to and from some of the densest neighborhoods west of the Hudson while connecting communities to economic opportunities and cultural activities by cutting 20 minutes off the travel time to Mission Bay.

T Third Line trains will travel mostly underground from the 4th Street Caltrain Station to Chinatown, bypassing heavy traffic on congested 4th and Stockton streets. The project oversees the completion of four new stations for the public: 4th and Brannan, Yerba Buena/Moscone, Union Square/Market Street, and Chinatown/Rose Pak stations.

Riders can transfer to other light rail lines at the Union Square station. For more information on the project, visit sfmta.com/CentralSubway.
