Friday tours offer last glimpse of Transbay Terminal before it’s closed 

While it may not be a state-of-the-art marvel like its successor is projected to be, the Transbay Terminal, and its unique history, can still draw a crowd.

On Friday, the Transbay Joint Powers Authority, the city agency in charge of ushering in a new transit center to downtown San Francisco, will lead a series of historical tours through previously off-limits spots in the Transbay Terminal, which is set to be closed next month.

The hourly tours will begin at noon on Friday and will explore the back story behind the terminal, which was built in 1939. Patrons can learn about long-shuttered features of the terminal, including its holding jail, shoe shine shop and local bar.
