Wondering what the proposed 2015 expansion for Lindbergh Field would look like?
Here’s your answer, in 20 seconds of computer-generated glory.
The animation gives a view of a proposed consolidated rental car facility and transit center that could be built on the north side of the airport’s runway. The transit center would provide a bus, trolley and Coaster connection to the airport. Passengers returning car rentals would access the airport after exiting the interstate. Today, rental car customers are shuttled from the airport to individual facilities around the harbor.
Price tag? $569 million to $830 million. The facilities aren’t guaranteed to be built and wouldn’t be until 2015 at the earliest.
