    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.

    Gregor Samsa woke
    From uneasy dreams to find
    Himself on Muni.

    General [+]

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


    Dog, shaking. His mom
    Says, “He’s afraid of the J-
    Church.” I say, “Me too.”


    If Muni were food,
    It would be poop-eroni
    Pee-zza with tripe sauce.


    Confucius says, “If
    You don’t like stank-ass buses,
    Steer clear of Muni!”

    Oh, festering wound,
    Thou wretched laceration,
    Thy name is Muni!

    Muni’s like a rash.
    It arrives with no warning.
    And it’s unsightly!

    Muni is a boil
    On the otherwise smooth butt
    Of San Francisco.


    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.

    I haven’t been on
    Muni in two months! It’s true!
    Thanks, City CarShare!


    Each Muni ride has
    A haiku in it somewhere.
    Some have two or three.


    How do I love thee,
    Muni? Let me count the ways.
    Zip, zot, zilch, zero.


    Muni’s yearly loss:
    Twenty-five million dollars.
    Riding free: priceless.


    Fare ditchers! Such nerve!
    The only folks with more nerve:

    Muni in the news!
    Folks are sneaking on buses!
    No one wants to pay?


    I’m Jill’s Muni muse?
    Almost makes riding Muni
    Worth the agony!


    Muni sucks asscake.
    That’s my haiku. That is all
    There is to say. Done.


    I like to think I’m
    Cleaner than everyone else
    Here. Because it’s true.


    Need more syllables
    To capture the true horror
    Of riding Muni.
