Unless you've been living under a rock, you've probably heard the 50th Super Bowl is coming to the Bay Area. The Super Bowl, for MUNI at least, will be a dreaded nightmare, with hundreds of thousands of people in Soma and the Financial District of San Francisco days before the Super Bowl.
There are a few things you can do to survive San Francisco (in terms of public transit) while Super Bowl festivities are held Downtown. First, you can download this helpful guide from the SFMTA: https://www.sfmta.com/sites/default/files/pdfs/2016/SB50-General-Ltr_1.21.16.pdf
You can also look at this slightly confusing map showcasing Super Bowl territory and bus detours while the celebrations take place. There are helpful descriptions of each route detour below the map as well (note the 23 & 38R reroutes have been updated below):
All MUNI lines, albeit the E Embarcadero, will be in service when the Super Bowl hits the City between January 23rd and February 12th. Here is a list of bus & streetcar reroutes:
Inbound 38 and 38R buses will re-route off of eastbound Market Street to eastbound Mission Street via 2nd Street, then turn right on to southbound Beale Street to reach the Transbay Terminal. Temporary 38 inbound stops will be in place at 2nd and Stevenson Streets (on the west side of 2nd) and on Mission and Fremont streets (on the south side of Mission).
Outbound 38 and 38R buses will route to Market Street via Beale Street instead of Fremont Street. Outbound 38 stops will not be served at Mission and Beale streets and Fremont and Market streets." - Courtesy sfmta.com
38BX Geary Express: The regular terminal at Davis & Pine streets will be moved to Pine & Front streets.
41 Union: The 41 will relocate from the Transbay Terminal to Clay & Drumm streets.
81X CalTrain Express: The 81X will not serve any stops on Kearny and Bush streets, and will instead turn straight on to Market.
82X Levi Plaza Express: The 82X will reroute after the Transbay Terminal and will continue along Main & Howard, Mission, Beale and then turn on Market. It will then turn on Sutter/Sansome and resume regular routing.
