A Muni light rail vehicle with mechanical problems caused delays early in Monday evening commute, but trains are now running on schedule according to San Francisco Municipal Transportation Authority officials.

Around 5:10 p.m. an L-Taraval train heading toward the San Francisco Zoo started experiencing mechanical problems at the Montgomery Street Station, Paul Rose, spokesman for the SFMTA said.

The train’s passengers were off loaded at Montgomery, according to Rose, but the train wasn’t taken out of service until it reached Van Ness Station when it began to lose power.

It took 20 minutes for the train to get from Montgomery to Van Ness, according to Rose.

Underground service was delayed slightly until the train was taken out of service, Rose said. Muni’s underground is back to normal service as of 6 p.m.
