If you are planning on visiting San Francisco, you might consider using public transportation. It is very convenient and highly affordable.
There are a number of public transit options. One is Bay Area Rapid Transit (BART) which covers many cities and can take you from local airports to San Francisco. The other is San Francisco MUNI which has trains, buses and cable cars.
In November, 2022, Muni opened limited service in the new T-Third line that connects travelers from south of Market Street to Union Square and then north to Chinatown. This is a very big deal, because now you don’t have to drive or walk to Chinatown.
I decided to see what the new Muni line to Chinatown is all about so I went there and took pictures. The new T-Third line i Chinatown is fun, easy, convenient and efficient.
I took BART to Powell Street station. I exited and paid with my Clipper card. From there I looked for and followed signs for the new line.
Next I followed the path to the train loading area. It is easy to locate. Make sure you pay at the gate.
I waited for the train. It did not take very long
