Muni sickout, Day 2: Service adjustments
The great Muni sickout of 2014 is in its second day now. SFMTA issued the following adjustments they’re making in light of that:
BART is accepting customers with a valid Muni proof of payment between Daly City and Embarcadero stations. Muni customers are advised to go to the BART Station Agent gate to request entrance to the BART system rather than tagging their Clipper card.
All routes and lines continue to experience missed and delayed service. Even with 100 additional vehicles on the street today, significant delays will remain. Customers should expect crowding and waits of up to 60 minutes. Some routes may be turned back mid route to help minimize crowding. Announcements will be made via NextBus, on vehicles or in Metro stations.
Muni Metro (J Church, K Ingleside, L Taraval, M Ocean View, N Judah, T Third)
All Muni Metro rail lines will operate on their regular routes and continue to operate with two-car trains to maximize capacity.
Muni Bus Service
No limited-stop service (affects the 5L, 9L, 14L, 28L, 38L)
The following routes will not operate:
1AX/BX, 31AX/BX, 38AX/BX
3 Jackson – The majority of stops on this route are covered by the 2 Clement
8AX Bayshore Express and 8BX will operate without changes.
The cable cars are not in operation. Cable car lines will continue to be covered by limited bus shuttle service.
The F Market Line will continue to operate between Fisherman’s Wharf and the Ferry Building. For service along Market Street, please use Muni Metro.
Biking or Walking
In addition to transit, carpooling and parking, the SFMTA recommends that commuters consider bicycling and walking when these options are viable. If you plan to use a bicycle for your commute, a map of bicycle routes is available on sfmta.com.
