Noting the coincidence, Fitz the Reporter found this old paper Muni Fast Pass in a book by Dave Eggers. What a find! I mean, who knew that books still existed?
Fast Passes have, of course, gone extinct. But you can still wrap your icky Clipper Card in a Fast Pass with the card holders available in the Muni Diaries Etsy store!
Just in time for gift-giving season!
With the help our trusty craftswoman, Heather, we’ve restocked the Muni Diaries Etsy store with hella new wallets. Each has its very own authentic Fast Pass hand-sewn into it, with a backing of various old Muni maps and room for your Clipper card and a few other items. Only $10 plus shipping.
Get one for yourself, or to give to that special someone on your list.

Who knew about this before this week? I didn’t. And judging by the lack of Fast Pass-related vitriol in our Twitter feed, it sounds like a lot of people didn’t get the memo. Read more
Reader Tofu St. John has once again put old Fast Passes to creative use. He made a “Muni Mandala” with cut-up old colorful Fast Passes. You can check out his blog for more information on his other projects using Fast Passes. The “Muni Mandala” is available as a print and also as an iPhone case.
And if you want a new jacket for your Clipper card, don’t forget to check out our Fast Pass wallets at our Etsy store!

When life hands you Clipper Cards, you make lemonade in the form of a Fast Pass pillow. (That’s how the saying goes, right?)
Beth alerted us to this DIY project by Susi on Just Crafty Enough. Susi’s friend designed and printed the Fast Pass-inspired textile, Susi made her own piping, and voila: a nifty modern accent.
Missing the Fast Pass? Check out the Clipper Card holders in our Muni Diaries Etsy store, each containing these real-life bits of transit ephemera.
Talia posted this on the Muni Diaries Facebook Page! She says it was in a book, as an inadvertent donation to the Friends of the SF Library.
Note: fab color palette, historical reference to the Key System, and, um, $24.
