    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.

    Open fire hydrant,
    Open windows on the five:
    Shower time for all.

    Empty bus and fog
    Lichen clings to power lines
    Love reverse commute

    Oh wait, here comes another
    Why doesn’t it stop?

    Then the f@cker comes.
