There Are No Atheists in Foxholes or on MUNI

A number of readers have been asking me when MUNI would restore nighttime service to the N-Judah line, and one day, whilst leaving the N at the Embarcadero Station downtown, I saw this sign and snapped a photo.

True, it means Really Bad News for the KLM riders - starting soon they're going to have to take a shuttle bus out to West Portal and points beyond. But look carefully and you'll see - N Judah service is restored (complete with the new blue ciricled N in the logo!)

So, that's good news for some of us, anyway. I was really starting to wonder if I'd ever be able to take the N home at night ever again....

Special Note: This posting marks the 100th posting here at the N-Judah Chronicles! Woo hoo!


As you noted, N-Judah will also shortly terminate at Embarcadero. That will be good for me getting on there, as it assures an empty train and a seat as, like a cowboy at the end of a movie, I ride slowly into the sunset.

But the long term plan for the T-third is for it to turn left and go up 4th through the new subway tunnel. So will the N-Judah start running the Embarcadero tracks again years hence.

What does that sign say? that there will be *no* service on the KLM after said date??? it's not clear.

@shutuponyourcellphone: My apologies - yes, the word "no" is obscured by the bar (I took this pic in a big hurry ) - starting Jan. 29th, the KLM will have a shuttle, and the J and N lines will go back to normal, as God intended.

There will be no KLM service between Castro and West Portal after 9 pm Monday through Friday, starting January 29.

Shuttle buses will run between Van Ness and West Portal approximately 9 pm to 1 am.

This is the start of Phase 2 of the improvements. J, N and T trains will run their complete route. KLM trains will only run to Castro and then turn back.

Muni's annoncement

Brad, don't put too much into the long term plan for the T-Third Street. Until 4 months ago the plan was to run it as an extension of the K. Even if the central subway isn't killed, after 10-15 years of the "temporary" T-Third Street route, it's not going to be easy to change it(especially since the Central Subway would cut service on Market Street)
