A Busy Weekend Schedule Prompts Muni Disruptions

420 Event at Golden Gate Park

Saturday, April 20: A large group of participants is expected to gather at Robin Williams Meadow (formerly Sharon Meadows) and in the Alvord Lake area in the southeast of Golden Gate Park.

San Francisco Police Department will enforce the following street closures beginning at 10 a.m.:

  • Haight, Page and Waller streets between Masonic and Stanyan streets
  • Stanyan Street between Frederick and Oak streets
  • Shrader Street between Beulah and Waller streets
  • Various intersections in and around the event area:
    • Oak and Waller streets at Ashbury, Clayton, Shrader, Cole and Belvedere streets
    • Frederick Street at Shrader Street
    • Beulah Street at Shrader and Cole streets

During the time of street closures, no traffic will be allowed with the exception of Muni buses. Personnel from San Francisco Police Department may enforce additional street closures as crowds grow for public safety.

The following Muni lines and routes will be affected: N-Judah (Light Rail Vehicle and Bus Substitution); 6-Parnassus; 7-Haight/Noriega; 33-Ashbury/18th; 37-Corbett; and 43-Masonic.

Extensive delays and heavy pedestrian traffic are expected around the event area. Motorists who normally use Lincoln Way, Fell or Oak streets to travel between the Sunset District and downtown are strongly encouraged to use alternate routes. Heavy traffic and delays are also anticipated for Fulton Street, on both sides of Stanyan Street. Motorists should anticipate that Kezar Drive will be closed from early afternoon until early evening.

Easter Sunrise on Mount Davidson

Sunday, April 21: The annual Easter Sunrise Service at Mount Davidson Cross will begin at 7:00 a.m. The SFMTA will provide supplemental Muni service on the 36 Teresita route beginning at 5:30 a.m. until the start of the service from Forest Hill Station to Myra Way and Dalewood Way. After the service concludes, Muni will provide service from Myra Way and Dalewood Way to Forest Hill Station.

UPDATE: Inner Sunset Streetscape Improvement Project

To accommodate the final phase of the Inner Sunset Streetscape Improvement Project, Muni is running bus shuttles for the N-Judah Line between Ocean Beach and Carl and Cole streets since Saturday, April 13 and continuing for approximately two weeks. Bus substitution is required in order to complete paving work on Irving Street between Arguello Boulevard and 9th Avenue.

Regular N-Judah rail service operates between 4th and King streets and Carl Street and Hillway Avenue. Carl Street and Hillway Avenue is the last stop served by N-Judah rail service. For stops west of Carl Street and Hillway Avenue, customers must transfer at Carl and Cole streets to continue their trip. Carl and Cole is the last accessible rail stop.

Bus service begins at 4:30 a.m., Saturday, April 13 and continuing during regular service hours until construction is completed. Bus shuttles are following the regular N-Judah line except for short segments along Frederick Street and Lincoln Way.

Customers traveling downtown are encouraged to allow extra travel time for their trips or consider taking alternate Muni routes, such as NX-Judah Express, 6-Haight/Parnassus, 7-Haight/Noriega and 7X-Noriega Express. Customers in the Inner Sunset area can also take the 43 Masonic or 44 O’Shaughnessy line to Forest Hill Station and transfer to Muni Metro lines for downtown travel. The L-Taraval service is also available to connect downtown and the Sunset District.

Due to the ongoing need for additional bus operators during this time, Muni riders may experience additional gaps and crowding on the Chestnut, Geary and Mission corridors. The E-Embarcadero and 83X-Mid-Market Express lines are suspended until construction is completed. Alternate service is provided by the F-Market and Wharves and the N-Judah trains:
