Looking Ahead: Central Subway Project The completion of the MME signals another milestone in the development and completion of the Third Street Light Rail Project (Central Subway) and illustrates SFMTA’s ongoing commitment to The City’s Transit First policy. Located near San Francisco’s eastern border and flanking The City’s T Third Line, this 13-acre storage, maintenance and operations facility is an important component of SFMTA’s Third Street Light Rail Project. An ambitious two-phase development, the Third Street Light Rail Project was conceived to create new inroads to some of The City’s most traveled destinations, while improving Muni’s infrastructure, enhancing Muni’s support capabilities and ensuring system sustainability for future generations.
