Weekend Photos: Streetcars Without Names


Photo by mtarlock

This week at Muni Time Capsule we bring you Cranky Old Mission Guy’s 1970s Fast Passes. They’re a colorful, beautiful testament to a soon-to-be-bygone era. Whole Wheat Toast says they look like the insides of a Clipper card. Have a look.

A quick reminder that this will be a three-day weekend for many of you (Presidents’ Day is Monday), and BART will be running on a Saturday schedule on Monday, as will Muni. Muni will also be affected by Saturday’s Chinese New Year Parade.

And if you’re looking for things to do this weekend, join the folks who run the The Tender for another installment of Tender Nights, the post-Valentine’s Day edition. Tomorrow night at 6 at Koko Cocktails. Anything else fun going on you want to share with fellow Muni riders? Do so in the comments here or on the Muni Diaries Facebook page (“like” us while you’re there, please).
