The San Francisco Municipal Transportation Agency is kickin’ it old school this week, running its historic buses and streetcars in anticipation of Muni Heritage Weekend this Saturday and Sunday.
Streetcars and buses aplenty will be availble for riders to enjoy free near the ferry building on Saturday and Sunday, starting at 1 p.m. until 5 p.m.
During the celebration Muni will run its historic streetcar No. 1, which in 1912 became the first publicly owned streetcar in the entire United States, according to Market Street Railway. SFMTA will also run its “boat cars,” open-air streetcars strung with lights and signs listing their destinations as “nowhere in particular.”
And though streetcars are often a big draw for riders, SFMTA will run its historic buses too.
