Service Changes Coming February 22

Service Changes Coming February 22
By Enrique Aguilar
Starting February 22, 2020, the San Francisco Municipal Transportation Agency (SFMTA) is making service changes to improve Muni service. These changes will improve reliability and connections, reduce crowding and provide one-seat rides for weekend early morning Metro service with bus substitutions. Affected routes include the J, KT, L, M and N Metro lines, 7 Haight-Noriega, 23 Monterey, 1AX, 1BX, 31AX, 31BX, 38AX, and 38BX.
To reduce the need for transfers during early weekend morning service, all metro lines will be served by bus after the end of OWL service and before Metro stations open. Metro stations open at 6 a.m. on Saturday and 8 a.m. on Sundays. The new early morning metro bus will be a one-seat ride to your destination.
To reduce overcrowding and increase transit reliability on weekdays, the 7 Haight/Noriega will begin running 60-foot buses.  Adding bigger buses to weekday service will provide Muni customers more seats and comfort during morning and evening commutes.
Due to construction at SFPUC’s Southeast Treatment Plant, the 23 Monterey will be rerouted from Jerrold to Palou between Toland and Phelps. New bus stops will align with the 24 Divisadero.
The last runs of the day for Muni’s evening Richmond Express service will change, which includes the 1AX, 1BX, 31AX, 31BX, 38AX, and 38BX. Customers are advised to check schedules and note alternate routes. For customers traveling outbound at 7:00 p.m., alternate routes include the 1 California on Davis and Sacramento streets or the 38 Rapid at Fremont and Market streets.
Please pay attention to Muni Alert signs for instructions or look for Muni ambassadors near affected bus route stops to answer your questions. Check if your route is affected at
