Muni rail service up and running after six-hour interruption
SAN FRANCISCO -- San Francisco Municipal Railway's Muni Metro service was back in service Thursday evening after overhead wire problems near the Castro Station disrupted service for more than six hours Thursday, an agency spokeswoman said.
The problem began around 10:50 a.m. when an L-Taraval light-rail vehicle stalled because of a problem with the overhead wires just west of the station, Muni spokeswoman Kristen Holland said.
The problem stopped inbound Muni Metro service on the L-Taraval, K-Ingleside and M-Ocean View lines between the West Portal and Van Ness stations, Holland said.
Repairs were made to the overhead wire and service on all lines was restored just after 5 p.m., Holland said.
Bus shuttles were to continue carrying passengers between the West Portal and Van Ness stations through this evening's rush hour, she said.
