Event Summary

In preparation for the APEC Summit and the related street impacts in the Nob Hill area, Muni will need to de-energize the overhead lines that provide power to the 1 California Route on Sacramento Street between Stockton and Taylor streets beginning Tuesday, November 7, until Sunday, November 12. As a result, the westbound 1 California trolley buses will not be able service the de-energized portion of Sacramento Street and will be rerouted. We will be providing a westbound (outbound) 1 California shuttle bus for the duration of the de-energization. Read below for more details.

For information on the larger impacts to Nob Hill and Chinatown during APEC, beginning November 13, please visit that Travel & Transit Update page.

Muni Service Changes

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

Note: The reroute has been modified to account for a difficult-to-navigate turn in the previous orders. Instead of turning onto Leavenworth from Sutter, outbound 1 California buses will now turn onto Larkin from Sutter, then from Larkin back onto Sacramento where they'll resume the regular outbound route. One additional stop will be missed by the rerouting buses, however, this stop is already being served by the 1 California bus shuttles. If you need to board an outbound (westbound) 1 California bus at Sacramento St & Hyde St, you'll need to use one of the 1 California shuttles, then transfer to a regular 1 California bus at Sacramento & Van Ness to continue travelling west. The table below has been edited to reflect the new reroute, missed stops and alternate stop locations.
