A post shared by Erin (@kirinqueen) on

Sometimes you see a tender moment on Muni and it just really makes your day, like this sweet dad braiding his little girl’s hair. Thanks to @kirinqueen on Instagram for sharing this! And in case you missed it, for Father’s day, we have a new podcast episode featuring comedian Dhaya Lakshminarayanan on her dad’s take on Muni weirdos.

When your Muni driver hands out unexpected treats

Just when you think Monday is getting you down, this Muni driver’s random kindness can cheer anyone up. From the Muni Diaries Instagram submission box, @Bloom_reports says:

My Muni driver was handing out 🍒 earlier today. Carried ’em home in my pocket. Love this city.

A few years ago a Muni operator told us that he would hand out candy when he’s driving on Halloween night to sooth the mood on the bus if anyone belligerent gets on. So sweet.

More like the 14-Rrrrrrruff.

By the looks of it, this is a brand-spanking new bed — and a very lucky pooch. Hats off to these dog owners for creating a jealously comfortable Muni ride for their pet.

The Muni menagerie never disappoints — so much so, we have a whole category teeming with odes to the four-legged, the feathered, and even the scaly that have joined humans on our adventures through town.

Easter Bun-day again: bunny in a bonnet on Muni

rabbit bunny on muni in a bed by dhmspector

Attention on the concourse, and be still our beating hearts, we’ve received word of a bunny in a granny cart on Muni. And it’s wearing a…rabbit coozie? It kind of makes the rabbit look like it has bangs, to which we say: werq, Muni bunny.

I’m not up on my rabbit facial recognition skills, but I don’t think this is the bunny on a leash we recently posted. Which means, cross all fingers and toes, that this is a budding trend.

Thank you @dhmspector for the Instagram submission.

Rabbit on a leash waits for Muni

From the depths of Reddit comes this delightful street snap: A rabbit on a leash, complete with adorably snug harness, waiting for Muni at Powell station. Redditor Amg137 reports that the rabbit was “was amazingly chill considering how loud that station can be.” Perhaps those bunny ears cover some of the noise from the train?

Enbiggen!

Observe: floppy bunny ears and…is that front-paw foldage?

Shh, don’t tell the Muni rabbit this Boston rabbit rode the T with a bit more freedom:
