The Super Bowl streetcar shutdown has begun. As the SFMTA graphic shows, the Market Street portion of the F-line will be running buses instead of streetcars until February 12. More details on service changes here.
The F-line streetcars will shuttle between Steuart Street and Don Chee Way (site of our San Francisco Railway Museum) and Fisherman’s Wharf. The Steuart Street F-line stop will be the transfer point between the streetcars and buses.
The E-line weekend streetcar service has been cancelled for the next three weekends. Muni operations turned away Market Street Railway’s recommendation that E-line service operate every day during Super Bowl Week, to carry crowds from Caltrain up to the gates of Super Bowl City.
At our museum, we will have some special merchandise, including tee shirts featuring a Kezar Stadium Football Day N-Judah streetcar dash sign. We also have an encore run of our exhibit, “Take Me Out”, reliving the days when San Franciscans used streetcars to reach every kind of attraction, including sporting events. And if you haven’t bought your 2016 “Museums in Motion” calendar yet, this would be a great time to get one and save the shipping cost that we have to charge online.
If you’re going to Super Bowl City, which runs January 30 until game day, pay us a visit. We’re just outside the secure area. (In case you’re just joining us, this corporate extravaganza (for which SFMTA and other city agencies are not being reimbursed by the NFL) is taking over the easternmost three blocks of Market Street, plus several blocks of The Embarcadero’s southbound traffic lanes, for a total of three weeks, counting set up and tear down time.
