Faregate Changes at Muni Underground Stations

A message from Matthew West, Muni Accessibility Coordinator:

Dear Friends of Accessible Public Transit:

I am writing to remind you that over the course of the next three months SFMTA will be replacing all of the existing faregates, emergency and swing gates, as well as installing new ticket vending machines at all Muni Metro underground stations.

Please be aware of the potential for construction detours during the listed time frames. An accessible path of travel to access the station agent booths will be maintained by our construction contractors.

For your review, we have assembled the following tentative construction schedule:

August 2nd through 6th | Civic Center Pilot Array of Fare Gates (NOTE: Existing fare gates will remain open)
August 9 | Powell Ticket Vending Machines
August 10 | Forrest Hill Ticket Vending Machines
August 11 | Castro Ticket Vending Machines
August 12 | Church Ticket Vending Machines
August 13th and 16th | Montgomery Ticket Vending Machines
August 17th and 18th | Embarcadero Ticket Vending Machines
August 24th | West Portal Ticket Vending Machines
First Week of September | Finish Civic Center installation
Late September | Van Ness Ticket Vending Machines
Mid-October | Full Installation Complete (All Metro Stations)

If you have specific questions about the construction or new faregates and equipment, please contact SFMTA Accessible Services at 415.701.4485

Thanks for riding the Muni!
