Curbed San Francisco reports:
Beginning Monday, March 30, all Muni metro and light-rail routes will be replaced by buses during the COVID-19 shelter-in-place order. This means that all light-rail trains, which service underground and above ground routes, will cease operating until further notice.
Passengers can take bus substitutions for the J, KT, L, M, and N lines using the same bus stops as the early morning Metro bus service, according to SFMTA.
All Muni metro subway stations (West Portal, Forest Hill, Castro, Church, Van Ness) will be closed, except for downtown stations (Civic Center, Powell, New Montgomery, Embarcadero) which will stay open for passengers using BART.

Moving SF – Starting March 30: New Muni Service Changeshttps://t.co/hcgWeiUK1m

SF Muni will run all service on surface streets starting 3/30. Underground light rail will operate as bus instead.
Agency says this enables them to “redirect custodial resources to other, higher-use facilities and minimizes risk to our station agents.” https://t.co/df6p5z0MXz
