WTS-LA Monthly Luncheon

6:35 PM PDT on May 28, 2008

Shoehorning transit into the heart of a major city is never easy. But it must be done. With the $1.4 billion, 5.1-mile Central Subway Project, San Francisco Municipal Transportation Agency (SFMTA) Executive Director Nathaniel Ford and SFMTA Deputy General Manager Carter Rohan know first hand how challenging it can be.

The second phase of the Third Street Light Rail Project,
Central Subway is "vital to connecting the city's civic, business and
cultural centers with the diverse communities along the corridor."
Improving service reliability and travel times, the project also
promises to provide economic opportunities locally and regionally. And
on June 18th, SFMTA Executive Director Ford and SFMTA Deputy General
Manager Carter will enlighten WTS-LA members as to their challenges and
progress in making Central Subway a reality.

transit into San Francisco can't be easy. But somebody's got to do it.
Join us on June18th and meet two people who are doing it right now.
