Aww: Cute on Muni

Muni Arts and Crafts Class: Origami


Some like to tune the world out. Others actively people-watch. And there are those who capitalize on their commute time by practicing origami.

The art of fine paper-folding is by no means the only art/craft that Muni riders engage in. To whit, we told you years ago about a few people who knit on the bus. And this finished origami bird found a home on Muni.

What do you do to pass the time on your commute?

THEE (new) SF Panda catches some Zs at Muni stop


If you haven’t already, stop everything you’re doing. Nothing could possibly be more important than this sleeping panda at the Muni stop. *LOL his bus just never arrived LOL*

I hereby nominate this panda to be the new San Francisco Panda, now that that “other guy” bailed down (boo!!!!)

h/t Muni rider Dan: “Out of luck panda sleeping at bus stop. In need of a hug… #savethepandas”

Furry on Muni!


I hereby nominate this fella Muni Rider of the Year. Such poise! Many manners! And it would appear that he actually washes himself.

Via Muni rider Robin.

The Muni “Golden” Seat

Serene Lusano

Artist Serene Lusano doodles on the bus and has identified the “golden seat” for people like her. This ideal seat is the “least visible to looky-loos” and has “less [sic] chances of ‘elbow disruption’ from fellow public transit riders.”

When I saw where Serene’s “golden seat” is, I realized that that actually is the seat I most prefer. What do you think is the best seat on the bus? (aside from “the one that’s not next to someone with body odor problems?”)

Impromptu Haiku as Muni Fare?


We know Muni inspires some pretty damn good haikus, but we didn’t expect these haikus to be used as bargaining chips on the bus! Muni rider Lisa M. tried to trade her haiku for a ride on the 28, and the Muni operator said no (and rightly so). But another rider, “Larry the football fan,” was charmed enough by Lisa’s impromptu ingenuity that he paid her fare for her. And here’s a photo of her ride-winning haiku, worth at least $2.25.
