Central subway coming to the Marina?

The SFMTA is thinking about what’s next after the launch of its Central Subway service to Chinatown late this year — it is considering extending subway service beyond Chinatown. The transit service notes “Possible destinations include North Beach, Fisherman’s Wharf, the Marina District, and other neighborhoods in the northern portion of San Francisco.”

In early December, a meeting was co-hosted by SFMTA and District 2 Supervisor Catherine Stefani to explore Central Subway extensions. Attendees shared complaints about the slow pace of buses serving the Marina.

SFMTA reports that tunnels already extend one mile north of the Chinatown Station, reaching Columbus and go ahead.

Roger Rudick noted on that any extension is not currently funded and that an SFMTA official told one attendee at the meeting that the project could well be 20 years or more in the future.
