I found this photo while trolling Flickr for more Muni-related pictures. Is that a surf board and a …black board?
A while back we received a submission from a rider who found a clever way to transport a ladder on Muni. On the 47 the other day I saw a man with a bearded dragon who tried to charge me a dollar to take a photo of it. We’ve see rats, parrots, and a giant spider passing as passengers on our commutes.
Spot any odd cargo on Muni lately? Let us know.
This harrowing, probably-totally-against-the-rules tale arrived in our inbox the other day from Muni rider Christine:
Dear Muni Diaries,
The other day I learned you can’t bring a ladder on Muni.
I borrowed the ladder from a cross-town friend. The 22 bus pulls up, I put my bike on the front, and walk up the stairs with the ladder, and flash my Fast Pass. The driver tells me that I can’t bring the ladder on the bus. Dumbfounded, I stare at him. He tells me it’s “too dangerous.” What?!
Anticipating a very long walk with my bike AND a ladder, I came up with a solution by the time the next 22 pulled up…. 🙂
Camouflaged, my ladder rode happily back to my apartment.
