Escalator out-of-service at Embarcadero Station


Escalator out-of-service at Embarcadero Station

Work to end December 2011

We apologize for the inconvenience caused by the out-of-service escalator near the corner of Main and Market Streets. Components from the main drive assembly failed, and the entire assembly needs to be rebuilt and the failed components replaced and/or reworked. This is a major undertaking that will require an extensive amount of precision work. This means the escalator will be out of service until December.

We are working hard to complete the work sooner, if possible.

All necessary parts have been identified and the work has started to dismantle the escalator. We are hopeful that we will not find other issues as we proceed, although this is an opportunity to find and replace worn parts we don’t usually have access to.

We recognize the great inconvenience this will cause you, but it will allow us to conduct a full service on the inner workings of the escalator which has not been done in many years. We hope that once this work is complete, it will result in many more years of trouble-free operation.

To check the operational status of the elevator before arriving at the station, please call 510-834-LIFT or 888-2-ELEVAT.
