Muni rail service up and running after six-hour interruption

SAN FRANCISCO

The problem began around 10:50 a.m. when an L-Taraval light-rail vehicle stalled because of a problem with the overhead wires just west of the station, Muni spokeswoman Kristen Holland said.

The problem stopped inbound Muni Metro service on the L-Taraval, K-Ingleside and M-Ocean View lines between the West Portal and Van Ness stations, Holland said.

Repairs were made to the overhead wire and service on all lines was restored just after 5 p.m., Holland said.

Bus shuttles were to continue carrying passengers between the West Portal and Van Ness stations through this evening's rush hour, she said.
