Headed to work this morning via the Muni Metro? Think again!

The SFMTA has posted a series of tweets about Muni subway service being disrupted in both directions due to a loss of overhead power between Powell and Civic Center stations. And while bus shuttle service is being provided for commuters headed downtown (inbound), the more sound bit of advice here is "consider alternate routes." Also, if you can make it to Civic Center, it sounds like BART is letting Muni passengers ride for free to Embarcadero.

Or just walk the whole way like Jack Dorsey does.

And, naturally, the angry tweets from passengers directed at the SFMTA have begun regarding the chaotic situation of trying to find shuttle buses.

We'll update you as we learn more, or as this situation escalates.

Update: Muni's troubles have continued well past the noon hour, and here are some photos of crowds of people who just had to walk down Market Street this morning from the Castro.
