SAN FRANCISCO—Unless one has been living under a rock, most everyone knows the new Salesforce Transit Center opened this past weekend. The 1.2-million-square foot transit center stretches four blocks along Mission Street, one block south of the city’s Financial District. The long-awaited facility will link to 11 transit systems and eventually high-speed rail sometime in the future.
