Who doesn’t love old buses? Look at those cute suckers up there.
Our friends at Market Street Railway clued us in on this weekend’s Muni Heritage events. “Along with the historic buses, special streetcars and cable cars will operate on Muni Heritage weekend as well, and there’ll be a number of events in the plaza across from the museum: music from a Muni combo; young actress Johnnae Saunders as Maya Angelou, 16-year old San Francisco streetcar conductor; cable car bell ringing exhibitions; chances for kids to color their own historic streetcar and ring that actual cable car bell; special transportation book and memorabilia sales, and much more.”
From SFMTA’s press release:
During Muni Heritage Weekend, visitors will be able to ride and view historic streetcars, cable cars and buses that are rarely seen on city streets. In addition to these vintage vehicles from around the world, there will be exhibits, children’s activities, cable car bell ringing demonstrations, live music… and much more.
Free gift bags that include passes, memberships, gifts and discounts from sponsors such as PIER 39, Ghirardelli Chocolate, the Exploratorium, SF Conservatory of Flowers and the de Young and Legion of Honor Museums are valued at $150 and will go to the first 100 families each day. Also enter a raffle to win one of five Muni Heritage Premiere Prizes.
SFMTA has more info over at their website.
