8:50 AM: True says the problem has been cleared.

8:16 AM: MTA spokesperson Judson True says that, as of 7:20 this morning, outbound N and J service has been disrupted by a switch problem in the Duboce and Church area. Service towards downtown isn’t affected by the problem, but outbound passengers are riding those shuttle buses instead of the light rail they’re used to.
