Project Details

As part of the Subway Communications System Replacement Project, the San Francisco Municipal Transportation Agency (SFMTA), which manages the Municipal Railway (Muni), will be replacing the real-time platform display signs and public address system in the subway.

This project will improve real-time passenger information, system safety and reliability.

The work will take place in two segments beginning Saturday, June 22 through Thursday, June 27, and then from Monday, July 1 through Wednesday, July 3. During these times, Muni Metro service will be shut down from 10 p.m. to 5 a.m. every day between Church and Embarcadero stations. Bus shuttles will provide substitution service on Market Street and will make all regular Metro stops.   

During construction, regular streetcar service will operate between these stations:

  • J Church: between Balboa Park and Market and Church
  • K Ingleside: between Balboa Park and Church
  • L Taraval: between SF Zoo and Church
  • M Ocean View: between San Jose and Geneva, and Church Street Station
  • N Judah: between Ocean Beach and Duboce & Church
  • T Third: between Bayshore and Embarcadero

Muni customers traveling to downtown can get off streetcars in the Church Street area and board a bus shuttle at the regular F Line stop on Market and Church streets to continue the trip towards Embarcadero. The first bus stop to pick up outbound customers heading to outer stops is located on Market and Drumm streets. N Judah customers can take the T Third Line for travel between the Embarcadero and the Caltrain Depot.

Thank you for your understanding and patience while we work to improve your Muni system.
