San Francisco transit officials shut down two west side Muni stations Friday evening due to a power outage affecting scores of customers.

In lieu of the station closures, bus shuttles will be available between West Portal and Castro stations, the SF Municipal Transportation Agency said on X. Above-ground trains on the Oceanview and Ingleside lines would remain in service, with train shuttles providing service between the Castro and Embarcadero stations.

The Forest Hill station was reopened by 9:42 p.m., SFMTA announced. It was unclear when service will return to the West Portal station.

The PG&E outage happened around 5:30 p.m. and originally affected over 2,000 customers, according to the utility company's website. Power was restored by 10:30 p.m.
