Muni Diaries, now on Pinterest and Tumblr!

Are you on Pinterest or Tumblr? So are we!

On the Muni Diaries Pinterest account, you can follow boards like Muni pets, strange cargo, or Muni wedding (and lots of other stuff that’s…only on Muni).

On the Muni Diaries Tumblr blog, we’re curating the best of transit life from the Bay Area and beyond. Way beyond. Like this hilariously lazy DC Metro cop on his Segway, riding on the escalator.

So if you’re on Pinterest or Tumblr, come on over and keep us company.

We don’t have to tell you that our public transit system is far from perfect. So what do you do to make up for what our bus system lacks?

This year we’re honored to be on a panel at South by Southwest to talk about data solutions for public transportation. We’ve seen the many ways that Muni riders use social media to communicate about what’s happening on the bus in real time when the official information isn’t fast enough. So tell us how you think Muni and other transit systems can use technology to improve our commute:

What’s on your Muni wishlist?

More bus shelters with NextBus data? Better arrival prediction? Yet another Muni mobile app? Throw your wish in the hat!

And if you’re going to be at South by Southwest, please come to our panel:
