F-Market streetcar rides inspire cute towels


Muni rider Cristina was forced above-ground, so to speak. That move led to a change of heart.

Two years ago, I sprained my ankle really badly. I live close to Church and Market and I used to take the underground trains when I needed to get downtown. But since my ankle was in such bad shape, I started taking the F-Market because the stop is a block closer. I’ll never go back!

I love the streetcars. All of them are beautiful. I love people-watching along Market Street. I love how even though it caters heavily to tourists, this line ends up serving all the types of people who live, work and hang out along Market Street. It’s my favorite ride in the city.

Cristina translated her love of the streetcars into art. The image above is one of her F-Market dish towels. You can buy them at her Etsy shop.

Happy Birthday, Nation

Dressing Up Muni For Christmas

Wonder how the street cars get in the holiday spirit? We’ve been lucky enough to join the Market Street Railway folks to decorate the street cars in the last few years. This year, Jeremy Whiteman of Market Street Railway sent us more photos of cable cars and streetcars all decked out in their holiday gear.

Cue the Christmas music! See more photos of streetcars getting decked out for the holidays …
