Donal takes alternative transportation to another level:
“Urban longboarding: Ulloa St is the Blue slope, Santiago St, a Black Diamond. The L Traval Muni line is our ski lift.”

Trolling Twitter last night, I came across this somewhat-unfamiliar Muni complaint from dianeosaurus:
No one riding Muni ever looks happy. Public transit clearly suuuucks.

The photo above, by
jennifer7people, showed up on our Muni Photos Flickr group pool a few minutes later.
When I got married a few months ago, hella people asked me if we would take photos on Muni. I was all, “No way! We don’t wanna get
that dirty!” This brave couple couldn’t care less, obviously. Bravo! And congrats to you two.
This is neither here nor there, but that guy on the far left looks like Steve Carell, eh?
On Twitter, @ kkblabs spotted a cute little Muni stowaway. Thanks for the photo!

Genejo at HoodscopeSF spotted a familiar face on the bus over the weekend:
The Silver Robot Guy isn’t so robotic anymore after a long day of work.
