Soon, San Francisco will have to say goodbye to fecal-ridden, piss-smelling Transbay Terminal we've all come to know and love. Although the controversial Pelli Clarke Pelli tower and terminal won't be finished until 2014, the Temporary Transbay Terminal (TTT) breaks ground next month and will be fully operational in less than a year. Bound by Main, Howard, Beale, and Folsom Streets, the TTT will be used as downtown's transit hub, serving AC Transit, WestCAT, MUNI, Golden Gate Transit, SamTrans and Greyhound passengers while the existing building is demolished and until the new Transbay Transit Center is up and running. the San Francisco Redevelopment Agency will step in and build a mixed-use housing development and park.
