SF’s Downtown Rail Line Plan is now The Portal

San Francisco’s planned Downtown Rail Extension, an expensive and controversial project that transit advocates view as a lynchpin for the region’s long-term needs, is set to be renamed “The Portal” when transit bosses meet next month.

The proposed rail tunnel will connect Caltrain—and future high-speed trains—at 4th and King Street Station to the massive new Salesforce Transit Center, where a newly built station awaits.

The rebrand comes after the authority surveyed 400 voters along Bay Area major transit corridors and found that just 12% were “very familiar” with DTX, or the Downtown Rail Extension, while 28% were “somewhat familiar” with the project.
