Rally to Fund the Downtown Rail Extension to SF’s Transbay Transit Center

From Friends of Caltrain via Facebook:

The “Downtown Extension to Transbay” will connect Caltrain to downtown SF with 3x the amount of jobs as the rest of the line combined. But the plan to fund this critical project is still up in the air. At 11:00 a.m. on Wednesday June 24th there will be a pro-DTX rally on the steps of the SF City Hall. Come encourage San Francisco and regional leaders to move forward getting Caltrain extended into downtown San Francisco.
