Muni restores late evening metro service
March 25, 2008 7:46 AM
For those who find themselves on campus late at night and headed inbound toward the Embarcadero, they will no longer be forced off the metro train at Muni's West Portal station.
The San Francisco Municipal Transportation Agency restored full weeknight service to 1 a.m. between the West Portal and Embarcadero stations on its K, T, L and M lines as of Monday, March 24.
Previously, riders would be asked to ride a shuttle bus between the closed stations after 9:00 p.m.
The K, T, L and M shuttle bus service will be discontinued between West Portal and Van Ness stations. The regular Owl bus services will operate on a normal schedule.
Muni limited its service back in January 2006 for the "Metro Subway Overhead Improvement Project," to replace the overhead wires that provide power to the subway cars.
SFMTA also announced that the Twin Peaks tunnel and West Portal station improvement projects will offer "faster, smoother and more reliable service" on the K, T, L and M lines.
Those who would like an escort across campus to the Muni platform at 19th and Holloway avenues should contact the campus Department of Public Safety at 415-338-7200. SF State's Campus Alliance for a Risk-free Environment will arrange for police escorts, but asks that pedestrians allow 10 to 15 minutes for C.A.R.E. to arrive.
