Ahead of the grand opening of San Francisco’s Chase Center, future home to the Golden State Warriors, San Francisco Municipal Railway officials on Tuesday unveiled the city’s newest Muni stop in the Mission Bay neighborhood.
Mayor London Breed and state Assemblyman David Chiu, D-San Francisco, joined Warriors CEO Rick Welts and others for a ribbon-cutting ceremony to inaugurate the new T-Third Street line platform at Third Street and Warriors Way, formerly known as South Street.
Breed said of the Warriors: “They have put their money where their mouth is by making investments in our transportation system here in San Francisco and this platform is just one of their many commitments to supporting transportation.”
The Chase Center opens in September in the fast-growing Mission Bay neighborhood, which is also home to the University of California at San Francisco’s Mission Bay campus.
The Chase Center is set to open on Sept. 6 for its inaugural concert featuring Metallica and the San Francisco Symphony.
