On Muni, Bring Your Own Chair. Lots of Them.

Muni newbie lesson number one: that clear liquid on your seat? It’s not water. So what do experienced Muni riders do? Bring your own seats, of course. While running Muni Diaries from our living rooms the last few years, we have seen so many DIY seating submissions that I had to put them all together here just for pure amusement.

Here are all the chairs we’ve spotted on Muni. So. Many. Chairs!

Oh and by the way, these chairs probably didn’t cost $9,100 like the public art at Duboce and Church. That’s how we do.

While you wait for Muni, Lazy Boys are the “Bring Your Own Chair” of choice.

A sodden sofa beats nowhere to sit at all. I think.

Not as comfortable as a Lazy Boy, but not bad for wicker.

Something less comfortable but still portable.

Inside the bus. No question, this guy is the boss.

Bar stools. A must. Bring your own stool on the 47-Van Ness.

A very impressively prepared passenger.
