Muni Is Back on Track

Posted By on Tue, Dec 4, 2012 at 7:19 AM


The Tuesday morning commute should be a smooth(er) ride for everyone after last night's nightmare transit shutdown, which affected some 40,0000 Muni passengers trying to make their way home Monday night.

According to Muni, full service was restored as of 5 a.m. after a blown transformer knocked out service for most of

the night.

Here's what happened: About 6 p.m., a transformer blew at the Van Ness station, thanks to that heavy rainfall on Sunday. The agency replaced the subway service with a bus bridge through the night.

And while you were sleeping, Muni crews worked all night to restore service just in time for your Tuesday morning commute. 

But don't get too comfortable just yet -- more rain (and probably commuting hell) is headed our way.

  • 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.'"
