Transbay Transit Terminal - San Francisco (a series on its closure)
Ahead is the Fremont Street underpass beneath the bus deck. This image shows how the old terminal really no longer fits the character of the neighborhood. The terminal extends more than a block to the right. This is where the trains (and later buses) would feed into the terminal from the Bay Bridge.
The elevated parts of the terminal also extended another two blocks to the left over First Street and up into Essex Street where the structure delivered the vehicles back directly onto the Bay Bridge.
There are hundreds of bus drivers in the Bay Area that are real sorry to loose their exclusive access to the Bay Bridge. They are now navigating the surface streets during rush hour. And those ramps are already being reduced to rubble.
