Muni Metro delays sour Valentine’s Day commutes


From morning to evening, Wednesday’s commute on Valentine’s Day in the Muni Metro was not so lovely.

Around 9:30 a.m., a delay occurred at Castro Station involving a track switch, which allows trains to crossover, said Erica Kato, a spokesperson with the San Francisco Municipal Transportation Agency.

The issue was resolved around 10 a.m., as riders ascended to the surface for shuttle buses that never came, before returning back down to the station to continue downtown.

Subway delays persisted through noon, and eventually the N-Judah and J-Church were only running on the surface because of an issue between Van Ness and Church stations.

The SFMTA tweeted out in the afternoon that the N-Judah and J-Church would remain running above ground only for the rest Wednesday night.

Many riders frustrated with Wednesday’s Muni Metro delays, took to Twitter to express their frustration:
