The National Park Service and cooperating agency project partners, the San Francisco Municipal Transportation Agency and the Federal Transit Administration have announced the approved Record of Decision (ROD) for the Final Environmental Impact Statement (EIS) for the Extension of Muni’s historic streetcar service to Fort Mason Center.

This is an important milestone, as it marks the completion of the environmental process for the extension, allowing it to seek funding for design and then construction. Market Street Railway continues to be active in suggesting potential sources of funding for this important project, working in collaboration with stakeholders along the northeastern waterfront.
More details on the EIS process, including maps and drawings, are here. We will keep you up to date here on future developments.
