E-Embarcadero Debut -- July 31, 2015

Muni, with the cooperation of the Market Street Railway, inaugurated its new E-Embarcadero line.  It will run from Jones and Beach to the Caltrain Station at Fourth and King.  It can only run with double-ended cars because there is no loop at the Caltrain terminal.  The two Blackpool boat trams, shown at the 2013 Heritage Festival, were there for the inauguration today, but won't run on the line because Muni operates them as single-enders.  At present, the line will only run on weekends. 

Congratulations to the Market Street Railway for the years of hard work to get this line going. 

Muni operated the original E-Union line.
