Amtrak will move its ticket office from the Ferry Building location at the close of business on Saturday, February 28, 2015, and begin serving Transbay Temporary Terminal on Sunday, March 1, 2015. The Transbay Temporary Terminal is located at Folsom and Beale approximately a half mile south of the Ferry building. The entrance to the facility is on Folsom Street between Main and Beale Streets.

The Transbay Temporary Terminal serves passengers connecting to and from San Joaquin, Capitol Corridor, Coast Starlight, California Zephyr and Coast buses from Southern California.

The hours of operation will also remain the same.

All tickets issued prior to March 1, 2015, will list the Ferry Building. However, passengers traveling on or after March 1, 2015, with tickets for the Ferry Building will use the Transbay Temporary Terminal.

Security Check

Upon entering the facility, passengers must show your Amtrak ticket or photo I.D. to the Greyhound Security Staff. Greyhound security will also inspect bags and wand passengers for metal contraband who enter the building. Please allow additional time arriving for this process. Thruway buses will board at Bus Bays #7 and #8.

Ferry Building Option

The Thruway bus stop at the Hyatt Hotel (5 Embarcadero Center) is conveniently located 2 blocks west of the Ferry Building station. All trains will have a Thruway bus connection at the Hyatt effective March 1, 2015.

New Thruway Schedules Coming Soon

All other San Francisco bus stops will remain at their present location, however, there may be some altering of bus departure and arrival times due to the bus route changes. A new schedule will be released prior to the March 1, 2015, effective date.
