muni_generic.jpgIt’s just not Muni Metro’s day. A signal malfunction, since resolved, delayed service this morning, but another one’s apparently expected to delay the evening commute.

According to an alert Muni sent to media, “Inbound Muni Metro service in the subway is operating at reduced speeds due to a signal malfunction at Embarcadero station. Delays are expected to continue through rush hour.”

Which sounds just grand. So, how is it out there, people? Let us know.

    Around 6:30pm they cannot turn trains around at Embarcadero Station.
    An empty two car sits on the inbound track, for minutes. They back it out of the station – empty. I was warned, after an agitated passenger had some choice words for the station agent (hey, the guy looked familiar – it just happens so it was one of those characters that frequently complain at MTA board meetings). Next on, a couple of outbound single car K’s. Of which, the first goes into some kind of seizure. It doesn’t stop ringing the bell. So they empty that one out and run it out of the station. By now it’s pack factor 120% on the platform. That’s when Karl leaves to catch a 71.

    We deserve so much better service from MUNI.

    Certainly, the Mayor isn’t doing much more than signing pay slips when it comes

    to ending the endless MUNI meltdowns.
