The new Transbay Transit Center has replaced the former Transbay Terminal that was built in 1939 in downtown San Francisco. This modern transit hub serves 11 transportation systems and contains more than one million square feet. The highlights are a 5.4 acre (22 000 square meters) rooftop public park, Grade Hall, dramatic Light Column, and stay cable pedestrian bridge. The construction was completed in 2018.
