Sickout Day 3: No F-line on Market, No Cable Cars

As the “sickout” by Muni operators hits its third day, participation is dropping and more Muni buses and light rail vehicles are getting out onto the streets. However, Muni is still not attempting to operate any of the cable car lines and, as of 8:45 a.m. at least, F-line service is restricted to the waterfront, operating between the Wharf and the Ferry Building, with riders asked to use the Muni Metro subway along Market Street.

It appears from our live F-line map that there are nine streetcars on the waterfront at the moment this is written, more than are really needed for that stretch, so if more operators show up for later runs, it may be possible to restore the entire F-line later today. Check the map if you’re thinking of riding.
