  • Muni's 30-Stockton, above, and 45-Union lines will be rerouted during the course of Central Subway construction in the area of Union Square.

Muni’s planned transit reroutes and service changes near Union Square — which will last for the next four years — are set to take effect this Saturday.

Due to construction work for the agency’s Central Subway project, Muni’s 30-Stockton and 45-Union will be detoured in the southbound direction around Union Square. The two lines — which collectively carry nearly 35,000 passengers and are frequently jammed with people near Union Square — will now turn right onto Sutter Street after exiting the Stockton Street tunnel.

From there, the buses will travel west until they hit Mason Street, where they’ll take a left-hand turn. Once the buses hit Market Street, they’ll take a left and travel eastbound for half a block before turning right down Fifth Street. The northbound route of the two lines will not be affected.

To help compensate for the transit changes, Muni will also run a shuttle bus service between Broadway and Kearny streets and points in the SoMa District.

The agency’s $1.6 billion Central Subway project, set to be open for customers in 2019, will extend Muni’s underground Metro service from the SoMa District to Chinatown.
