100 Muni StoriesUr doing it rong if you don’t find something interesting to look at on Muni. There are even points of interest for the most magical niches:

Muni easily reaches lvl 90 when it comes to people-watching, that’s for damn sure.

100 Muni StoriesMuni station diaries are a cousin of Muni diaries. Not quite the same when you’re stationary. But things. They happen. And they happen underground.

Witness @fizzylex‘s retelling in this tweet:

Wonder which instrument played “Scaramouche! Scaramouche! Will you do the Fandango?!”

100 Days, 100 Muni Stories is our way of celebrating Muni’s centennial. If you have a perfect Muni memory, share it with us. Tag your Muni tweets #100MuniStories. All 100 stories have a chance of ending up on bus ads later this year!

We hear you. Although there are some experiences we hope for.

100 Muni StoriesA Broadway-ready Muni driver gets creative with the announcements:

@bhautikj: The driver on the 27-Bryant is theatrically singing the names of connecting lines. Awesome!

Is it the same singing Muni driver from last year? When he’s bigtime famous, we can say we knew him when.
