New Light Rail line begins operations in San Francisco (updated)

The San Francisco Municipal Railway (MUNI) begins limited operation of the their new light rail line (trolley) on Saturday, January 13th. The new line will be known as the T-Third will run starting at the Castro Station, down the Market Street Metro subway, around The Embarcadero and down Third Street to Sunnydale Avenue bringing sleek, modern light-rail service to some of San Francisco’s most isolated, neglected and impoverished neighborhoods. ( unlike another city we can think of that decided residents would be happy with a bus).

When the line begins full operation in April it will mean some changes on other MUNI trolley lines. N-JUDAH: The N line will now terminate at the Embarcadero Station (not 4th & King) J-CHURCH: During peak hours only, the J line terminates at 4th & King. During regular hours it continues to terminate at The Embarcadero station.

For more information you can check out coverage from the MUNI website, The San Francisco Chronicle and the Examiner.
