San Francisco Mayor Ed Lee announced a proposal last week to provide $260 million in interim financing for the completion of the first phase of the Transbay Transit Center. The bailout deal followed the ouster of the Transit Center's executive director, who critics charge allowed years of construction delays and cost overruns. We discuss the future of the $2.4 billion project.

Guests:

Greg Harper, Chair, Transbay Joint Powers Authority; director of the AC Transit Board; former mayor of Emeryville

Scott Wiener, Supervisor for District 8, City and County of San Francisco; member, Metropolitan Transportation Commission
