Weekend Photos: Night Train

We kicked off the week with No Pants, so it might be appropriate to wrap it up with something more civilized, like this photo of a wise-looking gentleman reading a book on the bus, right?

Oh, what am I talking about — Muni is a riotous ride no matter what, and we’ve got some hairy evidence to prove it.

In Muni news this week:

  • Gov. Jerry Brown May Rescue Muni (NBC Bay Area)
  • Public Transit Funding Slightly Better in Jerry Brown’s Proposed Budget (Streetsblog SF)
  • N-Judah Transit Bulb Proposal To Go Before SFMTA Board Next Week (Streetsblog SF)
  • Muni Quietly Confirms Delay of Youth & Senior Passes to Clipper (Akit’s Complaint Dept.)
  • Phone robberies continue on Muni (SFWeekly/SFist)
  • Muni chief Nat Ford: I’m not going anywhere (SFGate)

On Muni Time Capsule this week, we bring you a 1968 photo of a “Muni experimental bus.” Turns out it’s not so mysterious after all, but still, we have some questions that maybe you or a transit buff you know can help answer.

Remember, Monday is MLK day but Muni will operate on its regular weekday schedule. Enjoy these photos and your sunny weekend!
