Too hung over to recall what happened Saturday night? Let us recap it for you. Here are the best Halloween costumes we saw on Muni this weekend. I threw one in there that’s not actually Halloween, but just another day on Muni. See if you can guess which one.

In the photo above by @emma_rkg, the zombie apocalypse has hit Muni. As expected, other passengers look pretty indifferent.


SF kid wants to be Muni for Halloween, mom makes it happen


OMG, we’re totes drowning in cute over here. We came up for air long enough to publish this, from Muni rider Jennifer.

Hey guys, just wanted to share a photo of my 3-year-old son. His love for SFs favorite municipal railway runs deep.

On weekends, we ride the train all around the city. He loves Muni. So naturally for Halloween he wanted to be a Muni train. I made him the T-Third because that’s what mama takes to work every day.

As for me? Sexy nurse? Sexy cop? Nah, not when my main man wants to be the third-busiest light-rail system in the country! Clipper Card it is.

He likes locomotives and steam engines too, but he doesn’t see those as often. You know, city kids. All about that Muni life.

Thanks, Jennifer! Now, back to DYING.


Airbnb apologizes for Muni shelter ads, and a new meme is born

Airbnb is apologizing about posting a series of passive-aggressive, totally off-the-mark Muni shelter ads that have been popping up all around town. And in response, San Franciscans have made their own memes with even better sarcasm than one could have ever hoped.

At first these ads seemed too ridiculous to be real (one ad reads, “Dear Public Works, please use some of the $12 million in hotel taxes to install more electric vehicle charging stations.” Really? This is the ad you put on a Muni shelter?)
