San Francisco cable cars, streetcars out of service for 49ers game

San Francisco's cable cars and vintage streetcars have been taken out of service due to the 49ers NFC Championship game against the Seattle Seahawks, a transit spokesman said.

The San Francisco Municipal Transportation Agency has made several changes in its Sunday transit service on to protect fans, riders and Muni vehicles from potential damage during or after today's 49ers game, which starts at 3:30 p.m., spokesman Paul Rose said.

Most cable cars have been replaced by bus shuttles for the day. Powell Street cable car lines will only run between Fisherman's Wharf and Chinatown.

Cable car shuttles will carry customers between the cable car turnaround at Market and Powell streets and the intersection of Washington and Powell streets, Rose said.

The California Street cable car line will be replaced by a shuttle starting at 2 p.m.

All day today, the F-Market streetcars will be serviced by Muni buses.

Most Muni Metro trains will run regular service, with the exception of the N-Judah, which will be serviced by Muni bus shuttles between stops at 22nd Avenue and Church Street.

Starting at 6 p.m., there will be no buses making stops on Market Street between Van Ness Avenue and the Embarcadero, Rose said.

Buses will be rerouted to Mission Street between those two locations.

All overhead lines that power electric Muni buses throughout the city have been de-energized, Rose said.

Other Muni bus lines will also run temporary re-routes on Sunday.
