munitweet.jpgFor all you wags who, when we have a story about Muni service disruptions, quips something along the lines of “you should write a story on when Muni’s working, now THAT would be news,” this one’s for you.

After Monday morning’s signal problems and afternoon, uh, signal problems (theme: sensed) that Appeal reader Karl said caused “pack factor 120%” on platforms during the afternoon commute, Muni says they’re feeling (in the words of Wilford Brimley in The Thing) “all better now.”

In a tweet from the MTA’s official account, Muni says that they are “Anticipating normal service this morning. Monitoring situation as we enter morning commute.” Nice to see them finally using twitter for rider alerts, that only took 9 or so months!

How was your commute this morning, Muni Metro (or other vehicle) riders? Were things, as they say, “normal”? Let us know!

    Commute Monday 6PM on the outbound N was not bad apart from a 15 minute wait before entering the tunnel by GAP HQ. And today, made it to work in 15 minutes… not bad… apart from the fact that none of the Clipper readers were working and I got pulled up by MUNI police for not tagging my card. Win some, loose some…

    Since a “failure” of the control system happens so regularly, maybe it’s news when it DOESN’T fail.
