5:29 PM: MTA spokerperson Kristen Holland informs us that as of 5:156, power has been restored to the Muni overhead lines at Castro and 24th. The 33 and 24 should be back on their regular routes, but “residual delays” could be expected.

2:59 PM: MTA spokerpserson Kristin Holland says that as of 1:43, the 24 Divisadero and 33 Stanyan are experiencing service disruptions because PG&E power lines have fallen onto the Muni trolley lines at Castro and 24th. The 48 Quintara, which also passes through this area, is not disrupted since it’s not an electric trolley style bus.

The consequence of this: They’re rerouting at 16th, Church, and Hayes streets, then back to their regular routes. Holland also says that Mini motor bus shuttles are deployed on Castro.
