I think it’s a universal law that booze plus Muni will get you some funny tweets for @munidiaries. Amirite?

We’re especially perplexed by the nurse and her sneeze. But also: Hello Kitty perfume?!?

  • Really, girl next to me? NOW is the time to apply your Hello Kitty perfume??
  • Someone’s talking on a flip phone on the train. A FLIP PHONE! What’s next, manual pinball?
  • When you walk on #muni and it smells as if everyone is carrying 32 lbs of high-grade cannabis. Each. #munidiaries
  • People who FaceTime their boo in bed on muni…
  • On #sfmuni and saw a #nurse sneeze into her hand and then grab one of the poles. #REALLY?! #gross

This week’s Things on Muni is brought to you by fellow Muni riders @amarar05, @davidbicha, @theporktornado, @photoberg, and @Spectre124. Get up on @munidiaries today!

Bear pays fair share fare, rides Muni


Okay, how wrong is it that I look at this photo and think, “Good old-fashioned family food, Black Bear Diner”? Scale of 1-10, with 10 being Princess Leia kissing Luke Skywalker (ew …)

Muni riders school ‘Drunk Idiots’

Muni is our urban Tipsy Taxi (holla, UCD grads), as it should be for any responsible reveler. But you’ll lose those kudos (and end up in SERIOUS kudos debt) for playing the part of Drunk Idiot on transit. Don’t be a jerk on the bus worthy of title-case Twitter shaming.

Drink safely, which includes not getting your ass kicked by annoyed, sober riders on your ride home.

Reminder: Muni fares set to increase on September 1
