Muni Diaries reader Casey reported the latest awkward strange cargo that someone took on Muni because that’s how you get around town:
When you have to take a streetcar to transport a spare tire to the nearest gas station! Thank goodness the train driver was kind enough to drop her off near the gas station.
Whether it’s a giant bubble wrap, a full-size mattress, or Saint Jude himself, our strange cargo report has you covered. Tag us on Instagram #munidiaries to submit your own report!

Muni rider Kim is on his way to bubble wrap all the things! I ran into Kim on the 38-R as he boarded the bus with his enormous cargo. He was nice enough to let me take a photo of his bubble wrap, but I didn’t ask him if I could pop a bubble because that would just be creepy, right?
Turns out someone else on the bus was equally impressed with Kim! Here’s a shot by Muni rider Lorena from the back of the bus.
Congrats, Kim, you have officially entered the Muni Diaries Strange Cargo Hall of Fame. You’re in good company with this styrofoam mountain and taxidermy deer head.
Rider and friend of Muni Diaries Laura spotted this … dress? art installation? on the 37-Corbett the other night. This is by far the most babies I’ve ever seen on Muni at the same time.
The sounds emanating from that thing have to be better than the terrible screeching of the trains, right? Also, that has to be this guy we saw on Muni last month, right?
Just yesterday I was asking people what their biggest pet peeve of other Muni riders was. Now, this.
As reported by Muni rider EC: “The patio table umbrella is closed now, but here is my proof.”
I just cannot.
It always helps to ride the bus with the patron saint of desperate situations, as observed by @nutcheese on Instagram. Just so you know, famous peeps do ride public transit, like the Most Interesting Man in the World, Chewbacca, and the governor, even.
