A cable problem has disrupted cable car service along San Francisco's Powell Street this afternoon.

The problem, reported at about 11 a.m., is affecting service on the Powell-Mason and Powell-Hyde lines.

Bus shuttles have been set up to carry riders along Powell Street between Washington and Ellis streets.

San Francisco Municipal Railway spokesman Kristen Holland said the disruption is expected to last through the evening rush hour.

Repair crews are working to resolve the problem.
