St. Francis Circle is a station on the San Francisco Municipal Railway light rail network's K Ingleside and M Ocean View lines. It is located in the St. Francis Wood neighborhood. Here, the two services split, although they will meet again at their Balboa Park Station termini.

History[edit]

In May 2010, the SFMTA began a major project to reconstruct and replace the rail junction at St. Francis Circle, the MTA decided to discontinue all M Ocean View rail service for the duration of the project, and shorten K Ingleside service to terminate at 14th Avenue.[1] Passengers continuing beyond 14th Avenue were required to transfer at West Portal Station to temporary shuttle buses serving stops on the K and M lines. Full K Ingleside and M Ocean View rail service was restored upon the completion of the project on September 4, 2010.[2]
