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.

Rail Replacement Project

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]
