Dearly departed: A call for Muni Obituaries
Photo by Flickr user smadden
Some of your favorite lines are going the way of the dinosaur come October, folks. But since the SF Municipal Transit Agency is banking on the fact that you don’t even know they exist, it perhaps ain’t no thang to you.
When in October? Mid-October. We can’t get more specific than that. Neither can SFMTA, apparently.
Anyhoo, we’re putting out a call for obituaries* for these dearly departed lines. Though I’ve personally stopped in my tracks and pointed at such oddities as the 53-Southern Heights (southern who?), some of you rode these lines regularly. And, undoubtedly, some of you will rightly miss their presence. Whenever they decided to grace you with their presence, that is.
It’s tragic, really. I barely got to know that 26-Valencia, save for a handful of times it happened to show up faster than the 14-Mission or the 49-Van Ness. I’ll miss its newness, those swanky red seats, and how it was by far the cleanest bus in the Mission. But what about you? Seriously, tell us all about why life won’t be the same without that 4-Sutter.
As a reminder, per the SFMTA website, these lines are getting the axe this fall:
Deadline’s pretty loose; we hope to go live with them as soon as the lines go kaput, so let’s say you have until Oct. 18 to send them in. Thanks!
* Post these Muni Obituaries the way you would any other Muni Diary, only indicate somehow in the title that that’s what it is.
