Muni Third Street Line, Day One

T-Third rollsign

Today I took some pictures on the first day of Muni’s new T-Third service. It was a fun trip; I’d never gotten out to that part of town before, and like Mark, I’m also “a bit of a transit nerd.” Highlights after the jump.

There were a lot of Muni workers handing out brochures and answering questions.

Here’s a classy move. The design of the stations is echoed in . . .

The design of the streetlights echoes that of the stations

. . . the design of the streetlights. Also, each station has a sort of mast with a distinct emblem. Here’s Kirkwood:

Kirkwood/La Salle

here’s Oakdale:

Oakdale / Palou / Opera House

and here’s Arleta:


The neighborhood itself has some nice scenes as well:


Or this view of the bay over the 101:


This might be my favorite picture of the day, though–these kids got on while I was waiting at Arleta, and agreed to let me take their picture:

These kids like the T.

If you go, consult Muni’s T-Third page for further information. Enjoy!

    how can you guys claim to be running a website about SF if you’ve never even been into all of it’s neighborhoods?

    you were waiting for a half billion $ train to be built to take you?

    Eh, I’m not sure; I could see it being time to bring back “cats.” I knew somebody in college who said she had a lot of friends who were cats, by which she meant jazz musicians.

    As for ph33r of BVHP, I live in the Tenderloin. :-)

    I think residents of BVHP should fear this new train, as it will surely raise land values and sweep them even further away.

    I agree.
