    What is MUNI Haiku?

    MUNI is the San Francisco Municipal Railway. MUNI Haiku celebrates and shakes a fist at all that is good, bad and curious about SF public transit.

    The world-famous and locally-reviled fleet is made up of gas buses, electric buses, connector buses, historic streetcars, lightrail trains and the iconic cable cars. It's complemented in some parts of town by BART, the subway that connects SF to its outskirts.The creator of this site absolutely worships the Italian orange F Markets.

    He does not step down.
    “Don’t break my door” driver yells.
    I step down for him.
    -Matt Foley (Bus #5408)

    24 Divisadero [+]

    It’s early AM
    Piercings on everybody
    I break eye contact
    -Matt Foley

    Up and down the hills
    “Please hold on.” Yeah, no kidding.
    I think I’ll be sick.
    -Matt Foley

    We’re all on our phones
    Pretending that we have texts
    We are such losers
    -Matt Foley


    “The driver’s crazy”
    “No bus can climb that mountain”
    …I am proven wrong.


    Please don’t stink today
    You are always sitting there
    When I get on board


    There’s but one thing worse
    Than riding Muni: riding
    Muni in the rain.


    Oh, wherefore art thou,
    Muni? Ah, there thou art! Right
    Smack dab in my way.


    Driving up Castro
    Is a nightmare. Thanks a lot,
    Big-ass 24.


    ghetto thugs play
    seniors look in fear of young
    just another ryde


    Divisible by
    Two, Three, Four, Six, Eight, & Twelve
    Your sum: less than parts.
    –Javier Ruiz


    I could buy something
    Cleaner with my buck-fifty.
    Like, say, a hooker.


    trusty 24
    a long ride to Barneveld
    through ghettos and hills
