E-Embarcadero Inches Closer to Reality
Muni is ready to resume testing its fabled E-Embarcadero route all the way down to Caltrain, as the city gets transit-ready for America’s Cup next year.
SFGate mentioned plans to get the resurrected streetcar route up and running in time for the 2013 event. But now SF State student journalists have confirmed plans for SFMTA to begin testing on the E this summer.
SFMTA confirmed the reports.
There’s no word yet where the stops will be. (For stop information, see Rick’s comment, below) According to Golden Gate Xpress News, an estimated $20-30 million will be spent on various transit projects to get the waterfront ready for throngs of boat-racing enthusiasts. Let’s hope it’s a win-win for visitors and locals alike.
