SAN FRANCISCO (BCN) — San Francisco commuters should get a little extra breathing room next month with the addition of extra trains during the morning rush hour in the Muni Metro subway system.

San Francisco Municipal Transportation Agency officials will add two extra one-car trains between the Embarcadero and West Portal stations during the morning rush hour starting Nov. 7.

The extra trains should help alleviate overcrowding and “pass-ups” at underground stations, according to Muni officials.

The agency has used the same strategy recently with great success on the N-Judah line, where the addition last month of extra inbound trains starting in Cole Valley has reduced pass-ups during the morning rush by 63 percent, Muni officials said.
