Turns out good deeds don’t always go unnoticed. For their efforts after the Giants’ World Series victory, the SFMTA honored Alan Yam, driver of the bus that was eventually burned, and Simon Timony, he of the Muni Defense Brigade™.

SFGate has the story of Yam, a Muni bus driver who helped usher his passengers off his vehicle once the danger became apparent.

And the SF Examiner covers Timony, whom the SFMTA board offered free Muni for life. Simon did the right thing, politely declining such a prize.
