Okay, confession: We don’t run this site because we love public transit and how it’s the place so many of our lives intersect, how it’s a great San Francisco shared experience, or sometimes, how it’s just plain funny AF. No, we started Muni Diaries because we love dogs. Plain and simple. We love dogs.
Now that that’s established, let’s take a look at some of the visiting dogs who are here for Super Bowl security. We’ll start with Gera, a beautiful TSA K9 seen above on a BART platform. Good girl, Gera!
Going aaaaaaaaallllll the way back to 2015 and inspiring cries of “I have never!” these pups riding the bus on Mission Street DGAF.

Or so says our friend Ronn Vigh: “Didn’t realize Muni changed their signs to “these seats must be vacated for seniors, disabled & dogs.” Um, DUH, Ronn!
Guide human for blind dogs? Were-Dalmation? Or just Jim, stepping out at night like only Jim knows how to do?
In any case, this comes to you via illusionofhope. You’re welcome.

Hello, Mr. Chunky Monkey on the bus. Dogs on Muni always brings a smile to my face (yes muzzles blahblah fleas blahblah I know). I can’t help myself. Here are three adorable animal friends riding the bus around town. Not pictured: me making ridiculous baby-talk cooing noises at these poor unsuspecting pets.

As incredible as it may seem, the Moscow Metro is home to some 500 stray dogs, a number of which have taken to commuting by subway. Perhaps based on smell, the dogs appear to know which stations to exit from, and they’ve been known to wait patiently as trains pull up and the doors open. If only some Muni riders were that well trained, right?
The (non-human) animals on Muni are a very well-behaved lot, we’ve found. Never seen a dog on Muni? There are dogs on Muni.
