Just when you thought Muni couldn't get any more unreliable, the transit agency reminded us that a portion of the city's rail system won't just be delayed on Friday, it's going to be completely shut down to all passengers.
Muni is closing some rail lines for 10 days while crews do repairs that will purportedly make us all much happier in the end. Specifically, the N-Judah Line will be closed, the J-Church Line will be partially
shutdown, and the 22-Fillmore, 37-Corbett, 43-Masonic, and N-Owl routes
will be rerouted. This transit fiasco starts on Friday at 7 p.m. and lasts until 5 a.m. on June 4.
So what are you car-less folks to do in the absence of (un)reliable transit? Exercise your self, of course.
Muni is asking all of its riders who are probably going to be counting on those rail lines to consider biking or walking to destinations along the N-Judah and J-Church lines during this frustrating time. "There will be disruption, but we are endeavoring to make it as painless
as possible," said Muni Chief Ed Reiskin.
"We're asking everyone who can to bike, walk, or even work
from home to ensure space on the Muni shuttles for those who cannot," he said.
Muni tried its best to minimize the agony by coordinating construction dates between both
the Church and Duboce and Carl Street projects so that residents and businesses will only be affected for four working days.
This isn't necessarily a bad thing -- maybe you will realize how much faster you can get to work if you pedaled your own way there.
