muni_generic.jpg3:30 PM: Holland, echoing commenter Alex Zepada, says that as of 3:06 this afternoon, the problem’s cleared. Oh, by the way, did you see that this quarter, Muni’s had its second straight drop in on-time performance rates? Their most recent on-time percentage is 72.3%, which I believe gets them bounced from the National Honor Society.

2:31 PM: MTA spokesperson Kristen Holland, perhaps sensing k2real’s contemptuous remarks says that as of 2:10 Muni track repair teams were working on the communications cable in the subway in an effort to mitigate the train control problems that have been plaguing the system all afternoon.

She says all lines continue to move slowly in the subway (is that like slow in the driveway?), and that “the N Judah and the J Church are switching back inbound to outbound at Church and Duboce.”

Anyone on the trains that can tell us what it’s like out there?

12:41 PM: According to SFMTA spokesperson Kristen Holland, a train control problem between the Church and Van Ness stations has been slowing down all Muni Metro traffic since 12:06 this afternoon. What fun!

We’ll tell you more when we hear more, of course.
