SAN FRANCISCO (KCBS)— San Francisco Supervisor Scott Wiener has asked the city’s transportation authority for an audit on the public transit impacts of a new Golden State Warriors arena proposed to go along the waterfront.
Wiener reportedly sent a letter to the San Francisco County Transportation Authority on Monday. Part of the issue is who would foot the bill for most of the transportation costs.READ MORE: 'Why Would Something Like This Happen To Me?' 94-Year-Old Anh 'Peng' Taylor Recovering After Shocking SF Stabbing Attack
The Warriors hope to build the new arena along the Embarcadero that would also be a major concert venue. Wiener said he wants the impact report before any further decisions are made.
“This is going to bring an enormous number of people into that part of the waterfront and people are going to need good public transit or we’re going to have a traffic nightmare,” Wiener said.READ MORE: House Votes To Repeal Of 2002 Iraq War Authorization, Long Championed By Oakland Rep.

He added that doing a large development like this would include having to pay transit impact fees and he wants the Warriors to be part of the solution in helping that system function.
