If only it were that simple
Muni is warning some commuters to find another route home tonight after a car pulled down the overhead wires, forcing three lines to go out of service.

According to Paul Rose, spokesman for Muni, the K, L, and M lines between West Portal and the Church Street station are currently out of service. Passengers have the option of being bussed between the two stations, with stops in between.

"If you have an alternate route of transportation to get home tonight, that would be something to consider," Rose said.

The good news is that the J and the N lines are running on normal schedules, Rose said.

The overhead wires near Church Street fell at about 1:30 p.m., causing trains to come to a halt. Rose said crews are working to repair the damage, which will last well into the evening commute.

"We will just have to see what the damage is," Rose said.
