SFMTA renames streetcar yard


The San Francisco Municipal Transportation Agency’s (SFMTA) board has renamed Muni Geneva Yard, which is home to the F Market & Wharves historic streetcar fleet, for the late Cameron Beach, a transit advocate and former board member.

Beach, who died earlier this year, served SFMTA’s board for more than four years and was recognized for his transit experience and passion for public transportation, agency officials said in a prepared statement.

Beach’s transportation career spanned more than 44 years, including 25 years with the Sacramento Regional Transit District. He also was a past chairman of the American Public Transportation Association’s (APTA) light rail committee, vice chairman of the association’s public safety committee and a member of other APTA committees.

Earlier this month, Beach was posthumously awarded APTA’s Distinguished Service Award.
