    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.

    20 dollar bill:
    Why should I break you again?
    Just to wait in M’s delay?

    M - Oceanview [+]

    Oh that West Portal
    Cute, quaint, and selectively
    Nonexistent stop.


    we run from the end
    of the powell street station
    to catch the car, ‘M’


    M inbound becomes
    L outbound at West Portal
    Muni’s April Fool

    Twenty-two minutes
    is a long time to wait with
    Crazy Backpack Man.
    –Mary Salome


    Who are you, old man?
    Parkmerced station mornings
    you are always there.

    Fellow commuter
    do you know that you look like
    x-files Cancer Man?


    stuck in between two
    stations for half an hour already and now

    this train is going
    out of service? i am so
    tired of this shit.



    great to have a seat
    wonder who sat here before
    thus channeling their spirit


    40 more minutes
    college students and creepsters
    cellphones and cold wind


    Now Approaching: M.
    Outbound. In seven minutes.
    Aw yeah… Stonestown!
