The new Third Street light rail opened up this weekend. It’s been pretty uneven service the last few days, both getting from Embarcadero and Folsom (where I live) to the Sunset and to Caltrain. Going outbound to the Sunset there were all kinds of backups of cars, bunching and other problems in signaling it seemed that made a 30 minute trip in to 1.5 hours. Plus, I had to change lines now (!!) becuase N doesn’t go past the Embarcadero any more so I had to take a S/T/J train and change.

SFist and the Chronicle both have more in depth coverage of what will hopefully be a short lived growing pain.
