511: Evening after-game service during Muni Subway System Upgrades Yesterday More...

Update: Service below will operate after the Billy Joel concert.

For East Bay BART, walk on 2nd to Howard, then turn right and walk to the Transbay Temporary Terminal. Customers unable to walk six blocks can use after-event service in the next section to get to Embarcadero Station, then transfer to paratransit service to the terminal. 

For the T Third Line south, walk along King to 4th to board at the 4th & King platform. Because of construction, you'll have to cross to the platform at 4th & Berry instead.

After-event service

For evening baseball games and other evening AT&T Park events during the Muni Metro Subway System Upgrade project, there will be special after-game service through the subway. The SFMTA will provide three N Judah trips and three M Ocean View trips. There will also be shuttle service between Caltrain and Embarcadero Station. Subway stations beyond Embarcadero will be available for exit only.

While the subway is closed to rail service, replacement bus service will be provided between Embarcadero and St. Francis Circle for the J, N, K/T, L and M lines from 9:30 p.m. to 1:30 a.m.  Regular rail service will continue to operate at outer stops.  In order to ensure that the tunnel is clear of trains at 10 p.m., depending on where you catch the train, service might end as early as 9:30 p.m. (example: Embarcadero may clear as early as 9:30 p.m., whereas Castro last train may be at 9:45 p.m.).  

Bus shuttle service will be operational by 9:30 p.m. each night. Additional service is available for about an hour after night Giants' games.

Please visit the Muni Subway System Upgrades Project webpage for more information.

 Muni Shuttle Bus Stop During Special Events or Subway Shutdowns

Important Information on Service Adjustments:

  • Muni Metro customers can board bus shuttles at the island F streetcar line stops adjacent to subway stations on Market Street (look for the yellow half-moon sign).  ​
  • In order to provide easier and more convenient service to customers, the inbound J will continue as the outbound N and the inbound N will continue as the outbound J at Church & Duboce.
  • The inbound K Ingleside will end at St. Francis Circle.  Customers can transfer to a bus to travel to downtown.  Outbound, alight at St. Francis Circle and transfer there to a K Ingleside.
  • The inbound M Ocean View from Balboa Park will travel through St. Francis Circle and become the outbound L Taraval to serve the L line stops beyond West Portal.  Inbound L trains from the Zoo will become the outbound M line at West Portal. 
  • The T Third Street will switch back at Embarcadero Station except the periods between Aug. 17-Aug. 24, Aug. 31- Sept. 4, and Sept. 6-Sept. 10 when work will take place at Embarcadero. During these periods, the T trains will end at Folsom Street. Bus shuttle service will be extended to Folsom Street.
