All San Francisco Municipal Railway cable car lines are being
served by buses instead this morning because of the rainy weather, according
to Muni officials.

The agency stopped service on the cable car lines as a precaution
and will restore service when the rain eases up, Muni spokesman Paul Rose

Cable car lines also experienced a partial shutdown Monday
afternoon, but that issue was caused by a mechanical problem that developed
in the area of Powell and Bush streets.

The Powell/Mason and Powell/Hyde lines switched back to avoid the
problem area while repairs were made.

Muni officials are warning riders to expect delays today as buses
and light-rail trains operate at reduced speeds during the stormy weather.
