I am not a San Franciscan, but I love the city, and Muni. A while ago I was visiting and took a ride on a Market Street historic trolley; it was the open top car from Blackpool if I remember correctly. I rode it to the end of the line, and was about to get off when I remembered I had not bought a ticket. I went to the conductor and offered my money. He asked “did you enjoy the ride?” I said yes, to which he replied “then you don’t pay”. Lovely…Only in San Francisco!

Lovely indeed.
