N Judah Work to Improve Transit Service will Require Bus Subs on Weekends

Thursday, August 31, 2017

San Francisco—The San Francisco Municipal Transportation Agency (SFMTA), which oversees all transportation in the city, including the Municipal Railway (Muni), today announced that starting on September 8, work will move forward on the Inner Sunset Streetscape Project. This project is a partnership between the SFMTA and San Francisco Public Works to add streetscape amenities to the transit improvements in the area that will improve performance of the N Judah line as part of Muni Forward.


The project will construct new transit boarding areas and curb ramps, replace sewers and water lines, upgrade landscaping and traffic lights and repave the streets along the N Judah Line from Carl and Cole to 19th Avenue.


The N Judah will require bus substitution from Church and Duboce to Ocean Beach during weekends starting in September. Dates are set for Sept. 8-11, Sept. 15-18 and Sept. 22-25. Additional dates will take place later in the fall to be announced at a future time. Another longer shutdown will take place in 2018 for street repaving that could be as long as 10 days.


The weekend bus substitution will begin on Friday at 7:30 p.m. until end of Sunday service on Monday morning. During this time, N Judah train service will operate from Church and Duboce to 4th and King. Bus shuttles will run to Frederick Street and Lincoln Way between Cole Street and 7th Avenue. For specific information, visit or contact 311.


The SFMTA will work hard to keep construction impacts to a minimum, however there will be some short-term inconveniences such as temporary sidewalk closures, transit stop relocations, parking removal, and some dust and noise.
