Muni Elevators Modernization

To ensure that Muni system is in a state of good repair, the SFMTA will rehabilitate and modernize 11 elevators in the entire subway system for the next four years. Once complete, the new elevators equipped with the state of art technology will greatly improve safety and reliability of Muni system, especially for seniors, people in wheelchairs and those who have special need.

Current elevator work:

Starting Monday, January 21, 2019, the Church Station inbound platform elevator will be out of service for about 10 weeks while SFMTA upgrades the unit. While the Inbound Church elevator is out of service, please refer to the following link for options to access Church Station: Church Station Service Options

Features of the new elevators:

  • New closed loop door operators will provide a new type of motorized mechanism that opens and closes the doors to make it safer and more reliable.

  • Custom door and cab sills provide metal tracks that guide the doors to open and close, with debris traps to reduce door issues caused by foreign objects.

  • Elevator/Escalator Management System will use computers to allow 24/7 monitoring and remote troubleshooting of the equipment.
