The clang, clang, clickety-clack sounds of the past will come alive later this month for Muni Heritage Weekend, when additional vintage “green machines” will once again take to the streets of San Francisco to transport Muni history enthusiasts through time.
The 5th annual Muni Heritage Weekend is held by the SFMTA and the Market Street Railway, our non-profit partner that supports the preservation of Muni’s historic vehicle fleet. Festivities run Saturday, Sept. 24 and Sunday, Sept. 25 from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.
Historic buses, cable cars and streetcars rarely in operation will return to serve the public for a weekend – some of them for free.
And with this year marking the 75th anniversary of Muni’s first trolley bus line, vintage buses will serve double duty as pop-up galleries featuring historic photographs from our archives.
The center of activity will be at the San Francisco Railway Museum and Gift Shop at 77 Steuart Street, which is operated by Market Street Railway. Guests will have the opportunity to take advantage of special sales of transit books and memorabilia. Proceeds will help fund the Market Street Railway’s historic vehicle preservation efforts.
