Combining two of the most San Francisco things in one cake, Alison at Pretty Please Bakeshop in the Richmond whipped up this amazing Muni bus wedding cake with a big Giants ad on its side! The cake was for Lisa and her husband Mark, who met on a 1-BX Muni bus they both use to take to and from work.

Lisa told us the story of how they met. If this doesn’t encourage you to make more bus friends, I don’t know what will! (more…)

Sneakers the Corgi showed up on the F-Market, you guys. YOU GUYS!

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.”
