Cool New Muni Fast Pass Posters Feature Your Neighborhood

It’s no secret that everyone loves those colorful paper Fast Passes. It’s been a few years since they were taken out of regular use, but we found these great Muni posters by designer Brian Toth, who honors his favorite San Francisco neighborhoods in Fast Pass format.

We caught up with Brian to ask him why he created these posters.

The reason I created these was that, like most designers, I’m a huge fan of those old Muni passes. They are iconic, something I will always associate with San Francisco. I currently have a set of Muni Fast Passes from January, 2006, to January, 2011 hanging from my door in my apartment. I thought it would be interesting to use that familiar structure in the passes as a way to highlight some of the many neighborhoods in San Francisco

One of my favorite Muni lines has to be the 22-Fillmore. From Dogpatch to the Marina and all that’s in between, this line is one of my favorites. If you take the time to ride it from one end to the other you really get to see the many aspects of the city we all live in.

The last time the Adult paper Fast Passes were in use was in 2011. Take a look at all the different incarnations that the paper Fast Passes through the years!

San Francisco Bulls mascot on Muni

Did you know that SF has a pro hockey team? You do now! They’re called the Bulls, an appropriate regional mascot. Seals, pigeons, and seagulls were already taken, I’m guessing.

Anyway, as Uptown Almanac reported a few weeks back, Rawhide, the Bulls‘ mascot, is just like us. Dude rode the 22-Fillmore and handed out free hockey tickets to anyone who said, “Go, Bulls!” according to a UA commenter. Neat.

Hear that, Lou Seal?

If you think the bus is so slow that you might as well be on foot, Motion Starved and Athleta on Fillmore Street are challenging you to put your theory to the test tomorrow in their “Race the 22-Fillmore” event. At 6 p.m., the runners are gathering at Fillmore and Cervantes to see if they can outrun the bus up and over the hill. At the end of the race, there will be free snacks waiting. Read more
