Third St. Light Rail Line to Finally Open Tomorrow
After years of construction and delays, including a FUBAR’d reconstruction of the 4th St. Bridge over China Basin (photo), the MUNI T-Third St. light rail line is set to open tomorrow.
The line extends service to the east side of the city, all the way down Third St. past 101 to the city’s southern border.
Rides are free all weekend for those boarding from the 4th St. CalTrain station, but those boarding at other points on the line are supposed to pay full fare. The service will be open from 10 a.m. to 7 p.m. only during the weekend introductory period.
The line ends just … uh… a block and a half from the Bayshore CalTrain station. (I can just imagine the shudders of pedestrians walking up the deserted industrial block that is the butt-end of Sunnydale Ave.):
