Today from noon to 4 p.m. you can take a tour (one per hour) of the 1939 building that used to be our transit hub and is now just a big, clunky, homeless shelter that some buses pull into. The tours will cover previously closed-off parts of the terminal, including Cuddles Bar, and the terminal jail.
The old Transbay Terminal is set for demolition starting on August 13, with construction of the new and glorious terminal to begin early next year. Transbay project officials say they'll be doing "extensive watering and misting" around the demolition to minimize the blowing of debris, but yeah, yum, asbestos. [Photo by Funkzillabot on Flickr]
