SAN FRANCISCO (CBS SF) — San Francisco Municipal Transportation Agency employees called in sick for the second day in a row Tuesday morning, prompting hour long delays across the Muni system.
Only half of 600 Muni vehicles were operating Tuesday morning, according to agency spokesman Paul Rose.
The agency added an additional 100 vehicles to the system but notified commuters to expect service disruptions.
All express and limited buses will be stopping at every stop unless the bus reaches full capacity, and cable cars will be supplemented with limited shuttle buses, Muni officials said.
BART will also honor all Muni fares between the Daly City and Embarcadero stations.
SFMTA is advising customers to find alternative means of transportation and visit SFMTA’s website to find out which rail lines and bus routes will not operate Tuesday. For real-time updates, customers can also follow Muni on Twitter.
San Francisco Supervisor Scott Wiener said he plans to introduce a resolution at Tuesday’s Board of Supervisors meeting urging San Francisco Municipal Transportation Agency drivers to end their “sickout” and return to work.
