A death on the Muni tracks has caused major delays on the underground Metro service for commuters on Friday.

A man was struck and killed by an N-Judah train at about 7:30 a.m. at Muni’s Montgomery Station. Investigators are still trying to determine why he was on the tracks.

Muni’s Metro service has been shut down completely between Church Street Station and the Embarcadero Station, according to agency spokesman Paul Rose.

Bus shuttles have been set up to transfer passengers between the two stations. Rose said it could be hours before service is restored.

BART is offering mutual aid to Muni passengers between Balboa Park Station and Embarcadero Station. However, Muni riders cannot simply flash their Clipper cards and enter BART stations. They must talk to a ticketing agent first.
