Muni Rapid: Dreams of the 1960s
“MRT” or “Mart” just don’t have the same ring to them as “BART,” I suppose. But that didn’t stop 1960s planners from imagining an extensive underground rapid-transit system spidering its way all around San Francisco. Eric Fischer has a series of concept drawings like the ones here, along with maps of the proposed system. Go to his Flickr set and spend the next several minutes geeking out, imagining zipping down below Geary on your way to Burma Superstar, or wherever.
Market Street Railway discusses the proposed subway, but says voters defeated it in 1966.
