SF BART and Muni Escalator/Entrance Project

BART and the City of San Francisco are working to protect the transit stations from weather, and improve both security and escalator durability. Market Street will eventually have new protective canopies for the BART/MUNI entrances at all of the Downtown San Francisco stations.  This project is being coordinated with the Market Street Escalator Project.
