Hub Signage Program | Operate + Coordinate | Our Work

Hub Signage Program

MTC has made it easier for you to ride—and connect—throughout the Bay Area by implementing a Hub Signage Program in many of our busiest transit locations.

Well-traveled hubs like BART and Muni stations, as well as key hubs across the Bay Area, now have standardized signs and displays to get you the information you need to catch that next ride.

Update

By installing consistent wayfinding signage, information displays and real-time departure displays at key locations, we’ve made transit trips more understandable for Bay Area residents and visitors alike.

For a list of the transit hubs implemented under the Hub Signage Program, and transit information for those locations, visit 511.org.

 View the Regional Hub Signage Standards and Guidelines, which provide the guidance for the Hub Signage Program.

Intra-Agency Collaboration

MTC has partnered with BART, Caltrain, Muni, VTA and other transit agencies to install signs that provide directions at the entrances and exits of transit hubs.

Responsibility for the operation, maintenance and replacement of signs is split between MTC and its partner transit agencies.

MTC is building out the design bench for the rollout of future Hub Signage implementation. Please contact us for details.

Look for the big orange circle with the “i” for information at downtown San Francisco BART/Muni stations and throughout the BART system.

You’ll find street maps, schedules and transfer info, along with a live screen with real-time info on when your bus or train is coming.

From Santa Clara to Sonoma County, throughout the Bay Area at key transit hubs, the big orange circle with the “i” for information lets you know you can find street maps, schedules and other transfer info, including real-time information.

A unique feature of the Hub Signage Program is the retro “flap sign” in San Francisco’s historic Ferry Building, the only sign of its kind on the West Coast. Once a feature in many train stations on the East Coast and in Europe, the flap sign is increasingly rare and symbolic of a bygone era. As such, it is perfect fit for the Ferry Building.

Check out the live webcam of the flap sign.

A busy and centrally located transit hub and retail center, the Ferry Building serves thousands of visitors and travelers every day.
