After eight years of construction, Salesforce Transit Center and Salesforce Park will finally open to the public next weekend—and the center is throwing an epic block party to celebrate.
Head to the rooftop green space on Saturday, August 11 from noon–4pm for food vendors (food trucks are literally being hoisted up to the park for the occasion), live music, fitness classes and more as part of the Grand Opening Salesforce Transit Center Neighborhood Block Party. Explore the winding footpaths, water fountains, botanical gardens and stunning views that make up the multi-block public park.
Partiers will also have the unique opportunity to walk the Cable Stay Bridge (which connects the center to the Bay Bridge) as well as explore the Grand Hall (home to pop-up shops, art installations, more live music and stunning architecture) and the Bus Deck of the Transit Center, where they’ll meet transit operators and get a sneak peak at the new Transit Center map, which will include new drop-off and pick-up areas.
It's not clear if the aerial tram (a.k.a. the Salesforce gondola) will be open for rides during the celebratory block party, but we sure hope so.
Normal service will begin on August 12 for buses traveling between the East Bay and Salesforce Transit Center.
