Aww: Cute on Muni

Superhero Muni riders to the rescue!


Sometimes, you have to take matters into your own hands. Especially if “matters” include “parked car standing between you and happy hour/work/home” and “your own hands” are literally your own hands.

Truth: This isn’t the first time it’s happened. A similarly brave, heroic feat was last recorded in February, and Derek Powazek even regaled a rapt, 2010 Muni Diaries Live audience with his own tale.

“We can do this,” indeed.

Designer makes 38L-Geary poster with road section and landmarks


Lucia is a graphic designer. I’m going to go out on a limb and guess that she digs San Francisco and its hills and public transportation. Just a wild hunch.

“I’m a graphic designer new to San Francisco (Outer Richmond). Just wanted to share a recent project I created. A poster showing the topography and landmarks for Muni 38L route.”


Mystery face sculptures found at Muni bus stop

Have you seen those strange smiling plaster faces around town, popping up between bike racks and on sidewalks? There’s one in FiDi on Sutter between Kearny and Montgomery, one along Clarion Alley, and one that Bernalwood‘s neighbor Ned saw all over Cortland Avenue. Now we’ve found another one at a Muni stop in Noe Valley, courtesy of danny_frield.

Spoiler alert: MissionLocal says that the smiling faces are by artist Bruce Hallman, and you can take one home if you’d like!

Shell the pet snail rides Muni


Earlier this month, we told you about a snail who, we assumed, got on Muni by accident. Snails often have time for that, you know?

Now, not to be outdone by the Accidental Snail, Shell the pet snail (you read that right) has convinced his human to pack him in his little box and take him out for a day on the town.

Also, this snail’s name is Shell. Amazing.

Via Muni rider Michelle Marie King: “on the #1 this AM – met super pet rider named Shell.”
