The T Line will soon be fully operational
Huge notices tacked up in the Muni stations now say that the T line will start running free on weekends for the next four months, leading up to its official unveiling for daily travel in April. The T begins at Castro station and terminates at Sunnydale Ave. Click here for the full account and for a list of the new stations serviced.
Also mentioned on this page is that soon the N line will terminate at Embarcadero, while the T will go all the way down. They’ll run J’s to Caltrain, too, during peak hours. So be aware all you Caltrain commuters.
Muni’s press release says:
The T-THIRD line starts weekends only as of January 13, 2007. Full service starts April 7, 2007.
The T-THIRD Metro line will connect all of the Third Street neighborhoods to the full Muni Metro system, providing a vital link between the southeast sector of San Francisco and the rest of the City. It will also give San Francisco over 70 miles of light rail track. One fare on the T-THIRD will take you to both of the ballparks, City Hall, the Embarcadero, the Bayview Opera House, and more.
Two Muni Metro lines (the J and the T) will connect to the Caltrain station at 4th and King Streets. Also, the T-THIRD will replace the Castro Shuttle, providing more frequent and consistent service.
