Beginning Saturday, January 21, southbound Muni 30 Stockton and 45 Union-Stockton routes will travel on Mason and 5th streets to access the Caltrain Depot at 4th and Townsend streets.

With utility relocation continuing on the Central Subway Project in the Union Square area, the San Francisco Municipal Transportation Agency (SFMTA), which operates Muni, will change the route of the southbound 30 Stockton and 45 Union-Stockton to accommodate construction along Stockton and 4th streets.

Routes 8X/8AX/8BX and 91 will temporarily travel their current routes; however, they will also be rerouted at a later date to accommodate additional construction activity.

All northbound service on these Muni routes will remain the same.

Starting at the Stockton Tunnel, southbound service to 4th and Townsend streets (Caltrain) will be rerouted west on Sutter Street, south on Mason Street, east on Market Street and south on 5th Street.

    Will the 30 and 45 continue to be trolleys or diesel buses?

      As there are no cables on Mason they'll have to use diesels.

        take a look at Mason.  There are cables now.  You haven't been down there in a few months.

        I should have said overhead wires.  Cables are for cable cars.

        Cables have been added and the trolleys are running. Just took the 30 this morning at 5th and Market.

      The 30 Stockton and 45 Union-Stockton are trolley buses. The reroute will begin after the Stockton Tunnel, southbound service to 4th and Townsend streets (Caltrain) will be rerouted west on Sutter Street, south on Mason Street and east on Market Street and south of 5th Street.

    I still wonder if this is really needed. Will the route really be so overwhelmed with construction that it wouldn't have been possible to just keep the original route? All the construction I've seen to date (for which they've already done rerouting) certainly hasn't seemed like they couldn't work around it.
