Salesforce Transit Center San Francisco First Commute Day Morning Is Today: A Social Media Look

Salesforce Transit Center, the long-planned, long-under-construction, replacement for the earthquake damaged San Francisco Transbay Transit Center, is open and taking its first Oakland and East Bay travelers into SF, this morning.

The $2.26 billion, six-story, six-block-long giant building developed by Maria Ayerdi Kaplan and designed by Cesar Pelli, fills a long-existing transit void, that the Temporary Transbay Transit Center, at just one-city block and open-air, struggled to fill. Now, all buses from the Easy Bay, and Greyhound Bus Service, are served by a brand-new indoor facility. How are riders responding to the newly opened Salesforce Transit Center, this morning? This blogger went to social media platforms to find out.

Judging from this tweet, the Salesforce Transit Center may have been opened too early. The claim is that there is “ unfinished construction everywhere” – that reads like and looks like a hazzard to passengers!

Still, this passenger can’t wait to see the six-acre roof-top park:

And this AC Transit Bus Driver on the “C Bus” is excited to drive passengers from Piedmont (a small town within Oakland, California) to the Salesforce Transit Center.

And there will be thousands of photos like this one of the outside wall design for Salesforce Transit Center:

This Wikipedia photographer went to Salesforce Transit Center to take photos of the park, this morning, calling it “an architectural gem.”

This AC Transit bus, the “O Line” from Oakland’s Fruitvale BART, became the first bus to enter San Francisco Salesforce Transit Center, on this first day of service:

It’s quite interesting to see the Salesforce Transit Center as it just opens for regular use, rather than the huge crowds that were at the grand opening. It will be interesting to see what the evening rush-hour looks like.

Stay tuned.
