Salesforce Transit Center & Rooftop Park Grand Opening Block Party
Saturday, August 11, 2018 | Noon to 4pm
Salesforce Transit Center, 425 Mission St., SF
FREE – RSVP on Facebook
The best entrance is the Grand Hall at 425 Mission St. at Fremont which will have escalators to take you up to the bus deck and park. Please note, the Gondola will not be open until September.
The Central Plaza is the hardscape (glass and stone floor) section in the middle of the transit center, adjacent to the Salesforce Tower Bridge.
- The easiest way to access it by elevator on the south side of 1st St.
- The easiest way to access it by escalator is from the Grand Hall. Those escalators touch down on the Bus Deck, and if the visitors walk forward to the next group of escalators, those will take them to the park.
- Visitors can also access it via the Salesforce Tower Bridge. Take the public elevators, accessed from the lobby on northeast corner of Salesforce Tower (at the corner of the Tower, closest to Salesforce Plaza and the Salesforce Transit Center).
Rooftop Park – Enjoy free music, arts & crafts, fitness classes, and more activities at the 5.4-acre urban oasis
Bus Deck – See where the buses roll out and meet transit operators at the new Salesforce Transit Center
Grand Hall – Explore the beautiful skylit interiors, browse pop-up shops for gifts, enjoy music and more.
