Fix It! Week Closes Muni Metro Early Starting Thursday, April 14  

Wednesday, April 13, 2022

Maintenance of Way Engineering conducting track and ballast inspections during early subway shutdowns.

Every night after Muni Metro subway service hours, SFMTA maintenance crews work to maintain the tracks and equipment underground. On most nights, this gives them only about two hours to get work done. To complete critical maintenance tasks that cannot be completed during normal windows, we are planning Fix It! Week from Thursday, April 14, through Sunday, April 24, so the crews have more hours each night to do this vital work. 

During Fix It! Week, the subway between Embarcadero and West Portal will close early at 9:30 p.m. Buses will run above ground to connect all stops, beginning at 9:30 p.m. through the normal end of train service at 12 a.m. while the subway is closed for maintenance. Owl service will remain unchanged.  Trains will start regular morning service each day. To accommodate those attending NBA playoffs at Chase Center, subway service will remain in place on evenings with games at Chase Center. 

Transit Service Plan - 9:30 p.m. to 12 a.m. 

  • KLM Bus Shuttle will serve all Muni Metro stops and Market Street island stops between Third/Mission Rock and St. Francis Circle 

  • K Ingleside and M Ocean View train will operate between Balboa Park and St. Francis Circle 

  • N Judah and J Church train will operate “interlined” between Balboa Park and Ocean Beach for both directions with a switch at Church/Duboce:

The extended Fix It! Week work window will give us an opportunity to do complex work aimed at making subway operations more reliable and preventing future breakdowns. The maintenance will cover overhead lines, tracks, signals and the Automated Train Control System, a signal system that tracks the location and speed of any trains in the subway.  

The next Fix It! Week is planned for August 2022. 

During Fix It! Week, Muni customers are encouraged to leave extra travel time when riding Muni during subway closure. Regular bus fares will apply on bus shuttles and valid transfers will be accepted. Thank you for your patience and understanding while we improve the safety, reliability and on-time performance of the Muni Metro system.
