    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.

    Get to West Portal
    Big delay, I walk back home
    No school once again!

    N - Judah [+]

    Castro rains glitter
    Man tries to clean sparkle splash
    Dude, wash behind ears


    You saved me again.
    3 dollars versus 30
    now I can buy gas


    Rumbles past my door
    It’s the N, trundling down
    Godspeed, ye wage slaves


    We made eye contact
    You decided to drive past
    Now I will walk home
    -Matt Foley


    Man smells of urine
    Please don’t sit next to me guy
    He always sits there


    One line gets me home
    one line travels to my hood
    I wish there were more


    sunset to the bay
    drunk bums, hippies, hipsters, YEAY!
    Every Single Day


    impatient, my boss
    squished and wrinkled, my clothing
    homicidal, me

    Shouted on a crowded train.
    Can you please get off?


    winter underground
    growing towards the sunset, soon
    cherry blossom time


    BEEP! bong! BEEP! bong! BEEP!
    “Please step away from the door”
    Door out of service
    -War S


    thirty-eight minutes
    before the next one shows up
    too full to get on


    a ten minute wait
    train left too full to get on
    oh wait here come three


    People on the N
    staring dreamy out the glass
    into my bedroom
    –tali m


    at last! 30 min ride from
    at & t park??


    Passive aggressive?
    You bet! I had hoped to go
    Fast like BART below.


    You give good karma:
    Yesterday I paid extra,
    today my ride’s free!

    the wonderful N
    has just only one weakness
    damn double-parkers


    New MUNI stoplights
    At 9th and Irving mean less
    accidents, I hope.
