Transbay Transit Center could seek state funds for rooftop park 

The Transbay Joint Powers Authority could seek up to $5 million in state grants to help build a rooftop garden at the new transit depot.

The Authority, which oversees operations on the proposed Transbay Transit Center, will meet on Thursday to discuss a possible bid application for Prop 84 grant funding, which is set aside for the creation of city parks.

A state bond measure passed in 2006, Prop 84 has $184 million available for local projects, and the funding must be expended by 2017. Authority staff is proposing to get $5 million for the center’s 5.4-acre park, which will feature an amphitheater, a children’s playground, lily ponds, and places for public art.
