Event Summary

San Francisco is proud to host the Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation (APEC) conference in November, the largest conference of global leaders in San Francisco in decades. More than 20,000 people are expected to attend this historic conference, including heads of state and dignitaries from over 20 member economies in Asia, the Pacific, North America and South America. Visit the APEC website (APEC2023SF.org) for further information about the conference.

Muni Service Changes

Multiple Muni lines will need to be rerouted around the main conference security zone in SoMa from Nov. 13-19. The SFMTA developed reroutes to maintain as many connections as possible. Riders should be prepared to adjust travel and to allow more travel time. We understand that these changes will present some challenges and we appreciate your support and patience.

Cable car and Muni Metro service will be significantly impacted during this period as well.

Note: Vehicle predictions and third-party navigation apps may not display information properly during this period. We advise anyone traveling through San Francisco to allow ample extra time for travel and to be prepared for delays.

Note: Be sure to receive real-time Muni service alerts via email or text by signing up through our Email and Text Subscriptions page.
