The red dots on this map highlight Muni reroutes starting at noon on Saturday.

On Saturday there will be multiple demonstrations, rallies and marches in San Francisco. The two primary gathering points are Crissy Field and Civic Center Plaza with multiple groups set to convene. Other rallies and marches are anticipated in various parts of the city. These events are expected to begin at noon on Saturday.


The city has a transportation plan in place to ensure the safety of people who will need to get around, including Muni customers and employees. Where possible, please use public transit, walk, ride a bike or hail a taxi. There will be increased congestion in the surrounding areas and parking will be limited.

We will be adding six two-car trains to increase capacity in the subway. 


For events in the Civic Center area: there are no plans for street closures, but parking will NOT be allowed on all streets around the Plaza or in the garage. During the course of the events, personnel from the SFMTA and the San Francisco Police Department will be on site to direct traffic. To ensure public safety, SFPD personnel may decide street closures around the event area are necessary.

We will be working closely with SFPD to ensure that people who need to drive can do so safely. In general, if you don’t need to be in the areas of these demonstrations, we are advising that you avoid these neighborhoods. For all trips around the city on Saturday, please plan ahead and allow extra travel time.


Additional details will be released as plans are finalized.

  • There will be NO Muni service in the Presidio or Marina neighborhoods starting at noon.


  • There will be NO SERVICE for the 76X Marin Headlands route all day Saturday.


  • The 28 19th Avenue route WILL NOT SERVE the Golden Gate Bridge Toll Plaza all day Saturday.

We will continuously monitor the situation to quickly restore service once nearby areas have been cleared.
