The unbuilt Transbay Station is already obsolete. Engineers commented that the proposed design would only accomodate half of the train capacity that will be needed in 2030. This new development may force SamTrans and Caltrain boss Michael Scanlon to request new designs prior to requesting stimulus funds for the project. Supervisor Chris Daly let loose one of his infamous profanity laden tirades against Scanlon on Wednesday night for suggesting that they put the brakes on $400 million in funding. Likely because Daly cannot understand the difference between 6 trains per hour and 12 trains per hour. In any case, it looks like it’s back to the drawing board for the Transbay Station design.
