UPDATE 10:02: We’re told the wire has been fixed and the regular (non bus bridge) L is back in service. We’ll bet you could use “residual delays” as an excuse to be late for work, though.

From Muni:

As of 8 a.m., regular light rail service on the L Taraval has been disrupted west of 22nd Avenue because of a problem with the overhead wire.

A bus bridge is serving L Taraval customers between the Zoo and 22nd Avenue.

L riders, sounds like a good day to go back to bed. Hell, that goes for everyone.
