    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.

    Stopping at green lights,
    The 28 takes its time.
    Backpacks in my face.
    –Chris Samperisi

    28 19th Avenue [+]

    No, Chinese lady,
    No live chickens on the bus!
    Oh shit, now it’s dead.
    - rowenofTC


    trying to get home
    throng of SFSU kids
    effing pack-assed bus


    today i took you
    because there was nothing else
    where’s my twenty nine?
    - rowenoftc


    Oh that 28
    Waits eternal it does
    only to pass me


    Took the twenty eight
    Got free transfer D.C. Bart
    Wasn’t worth the price


    loaded, campus-bound
    what once a destination
    now a frustration


    twenty-eight, nineteenth
    from SFO with suitcase
    cannot be subtle


    stop yelling at the
    old lady. she can hardly
    walk. driver. i cry.


    Are you there, God? It’s
    Me, Erin. Um, can you fix
    Up these stank buses?

    If cleanliness is
    Next to godliness, then God
    Must take a taxi.


    South from Golden Gate,
    the 28 chugs, like a
    slo-mo tube of suck.
    Nick Flip


    Twenty-eight, you’re full!
    We must cram through your back door
    and forget to pay.
    Sarah Dopp
