5:01 PM: According to a release sent by the SF MTA, J Church service has been disrupted after a an accident between a J Line train and a motorcycle at Church and 30th. From the MTA’s report, it sounds like the motorcyclist’s OK: they say he or she “refused aid.”

Shuttle buses are taking outbound (that’s away from downtown) riders between the accident area and Balboa Park. Inbound service is operating on the K route.
