SFMTA sent this service alert a few minutes ago:
As of 12:54 p.m., regular service on the following Muni bus routes has been affected due to an SFPD evacuation caused by a gas leak in the vicinity of 18th and Castro streets. Also, Muni Metro service both inbound and outbound is not stopping at Castro Station as a precaution requested by the SFPD.
Service on these routes must reroute around the area until the evacuation has been cleared.
Muni Metro customers are advised to use Church Street station instead of Castro at this time.
PG&E has been called to the scene.
Updates will follow.
