Bus Service Restored on 23-Monterey and 36-Teresita Lines

As of today, Muni has restored bus service on two lines that serve Sunnyside, the 23-Monterey and the 36-Teresita.

The 36-Teresita returns to the level of service before the drastic Covid-related cuts of April 2020, and the 23-Monterey returns as a shortened line. It will no longer go out to the San Francisco Zoo or Ocean Beach, instead going to West Portal. The other bus line serving Sunnyside, the 43-Masonic, was restored in June 2020 but has been shortened (full info here).

The 23-Monterey will no longer serve destinations west of St Francis, such as the San Francisco Zoo and Ocean Beach. https://www.sfmta.com/routes/23-monterey-shortened

All Signs Restored on Hearst Avenue

Just hours after the recent criminal destruction of Slow Streets signage on Hearst Avenue, SFMTA began to replace the damaged signs at each of the seven intersections. The work is now complete, and all the signs have been fixed.

Thank you, SFMTA, for the prompt response!

Mass Vandalization of Slow Streets Signage in Sunnyside

UPDATE 1:00 PM: SFMTA has quickly replaced the signs at many of the affected intersections.

Last night at about 4:00 AM, in an act of systematic and wanton destruction, an unknown person cut down nearly every SFMTA Slow Streets sign that had been erected on Hearst Avenue over the preceding few days. Apparently using a power tool, 33 of the 36 newly installed signs were cut off at the base. Every one of the seven intersections on Hearst Ave. were impacted: Baden St., Congo St., Detroit, St., Edna St., Foerster St., Gennessee St., and Ridgewood Ave.

SFMTA has already begun to repair the damage done, and residents at the intersections with surveillance cameras are reviewing their record of the incident. The incident has been reported to SFMTA and Ingleside Police Station.

If you have information that can assist in identifying the perpetrator, contact Ingleside Police Station (415) 404-4000 or SFMTA Slow Streets at slowstreets@sfmta.com .
