A snafu requiring all Muni trains to remain in manual mode in the Metro tunnel is leading to long delays -- and perhaps a few frayed nerves.

A signal cable between Montgomery and Civic Center stations was severed -- Muni is unsure how, but "likely something hanging from the train," according to agency spokesman Paul Rose. As a result, trains are crawling inbound while outbound service to West Portal is being handled by bus shuttles.

The malfunction has led to trains being lined up along the Embarcadero, and Twitter-users claim many passengers have simply decided to hoof it to work. Those to or from Mission Bay are advised to take buses rather than trains -- or, you know, hoof it.

Rose estimated the heavy delays and unpleasantries would continue for another hour or two.

  • clipping at Brava Theater Sept. 11
    Sub Pop recording artists 'clipping.' brought their brand of noise-driven experimental hip hop to the closing night of 2016's San Francisco Electronic Music Fest this past Sunday. The packed Brava Theater hosted an initially seated crowd that ended the night jumping and dancing against the front of the stage. The trio performed a set focused on their recently released Sci-Fi Horror concept album, 'Splendor & Misery', then delved into their dancier and more aggressive back catalogue, and recent single 'Wriggle'. Opening performances included local experimental electronic duo 'Tujurikkuja' and computer music artist 'Madalyn Merkey.'"
