Civic Center/UN Plaza is a BART and Muni Metro station in the Civic Center of San Francisco. The westernmost of the dual BART/Muni stops on the Market Street Subway, Civic Center/UN Plaza acts as a major hub for passenger movement throughout the San Francisco Bay Area. With 18,432 exits each weekday, it is the fourth-busiest station in the BART system.
Location
Outside, in the United Nations Plaza itself, facing Market Street, there is a fountain and a north-south cross marking its center to be at latitude/longitude coordinates 37°46′48″N 122° 24′49″W. There is a flea market at the plaza or farmer's market every day, year round. There are several notable buildings in the Civic Center area, including City Hall, the War Memorial Opera House, Asian Art Museum, Louise M. Davies Symphony Hall. The San Francisco Public Library's main branch is located across the street and San Francisco City Clinic is 2 blocks east on 7th street. Tenderloin is located two blocks north of the station.
History
Service at this station began on November 5, 1973.
Station layout
Like all stations in the Market Street Subway apart from Van Ness, Civic Center/UN Plaza has a tri-level configuration. Passengers first descend from the street to a mezzanine concourse containing faregates for passengers to enter separate BART and Muni paid areas, with one BART entrance on each end and one for Muni in the middle. Muni Metro trains stop at an island platform on the second level down. The Muni platform is punctured in several locations by openings for stairs and escalators that go directly from the mezzanine level to the BART platform, bypassing the Muni platform. As the openings are not blocked off by walls, it is possible to hear activity on the Muni platform from the BART platform.
