About the TJPA
A transportation gateway that inspires civic pride and progress through world-class architecture, superb functionality and timeless appeal.
To design, build, operate and maintain an intermodal terminal and rail extension and to collaborate with the San Francisco Redevelopment Agency and City departments to create an adjacent new transit-oriented neighborhood.
The Transbay Transit Center/Caltrain Downtown Extension Project is headed by the Transbay Joint Powers Authority (TJPA). The purpose of the TJPA is to design, build, operate and maintain the new Transbay Transit Center and associated facilities in downtown San Francisco, including the extension of the Caltrain commuter rail 1.3 miles into the new Transit Center, and accommodations for future California High Speed Rail.
The TJPA consists of a historic collaboration of Bay Area government and transportation agencies committed to replacing the current Transbay Terminal in San Francisco with the new Transbay Transit Center to improve the transportation needs for the entire Bay Area region and the State. The TJPA is managed by TJPA Staff and is overseen by a six member Board of Directors.
