511: K-Ingleside and J-Church Temporary Service Changes September 2016 More...

We are temporarily rerouting the K-Ingleside through May 20, 2017 and J-Church around the Balboa Park Station starting Tuesday, September 6, 2015 until further notice.

Some of the improvements we’ll be making during the service changes include:

  • Replacing switches and tracks inside the station for long-term maintenance

  • Relocating the three existing poles along the J/K walkway for pedestrian safety

  • Installing a new, accessible platform in the station

  • Upgrading the electrical system and tracks at Ocean Avenue and I-280, where trains enter and exit the Muni Green Yard, adjacent to the station

To minimize impacts to our customers, we coordinated three construction projects’ schedules to work inside the station at the same time – Balboa Park Station Area Improvements, Green Light Rail Track Replacements and BART’s Eastside Connection.

While the three contractors work inside and around the station, the J-Church and K-Ingleside lines will be rerouted around Balboa Park:

K-Ingleside Temporary Changes

The first and last stop for the K-Ingleside will be the City College Pedestrian Bridge stop on Ocean Avenue. There will be no direct K service to the Balboa Park Station.

There are two options for K riders to access Balboa Park Station. Muni riders can transfer at Ocean & Lee to the following Muni routes:

  • 29-Sunset (transfer to the Ocean and Lee stop in front of Whole Foods).

  • 49-Van Ness/Mission (transfer to the Phelan bus loop at Ocean and Phelan)

  • 8-Bayshore (transfer to the Phelan bus loop at Ocean and Phelan)

Muni riders can also walk about three accessible blocks from the City College Pedestrian Bridge stop to the Ocean Avenue entrance of the station.
