CA: SFMTA Updates Muni Service Adjustments for Second Day of Sickout

The San Francisco Municipal Transportation Agency (SFMTA) announced a Muni service plan for Tuesday morning and continues to advise customers to make alternative transportation arrangements during a second day of service disruption.

“I apologize to San Francisco residents and visitors for the continuing disruption to our transit service,” said Ed Reiskin, SFMTA Director of Transportation. “We are doing everything we can to get operators back to work and mobilizing all of our resources to keep as much service moving as we can.”

A modified Muni service plan follows. Customers should continue to monitor media news outlets and real-time Muni updates for information about service during tomorrow’s commute.

For real-time Muni updates during the week, 5 a.m. to 9 p.m., and special events, follow us on Twitter or sign up for e-mail or text alerts.

BART is accepting customers with a valid Muni proof of payment between Daly City and Embarcadero stations. Muni customers are advised to go to the BART Station Agent gate to request entrance to the BART system rather than tagging their Clipper card.
