New Muni Operator Uniforms Roll Out Today
You may have noticed today that Muni operators’ uniforms got a makeover with a new gray and red color scheme. This is the result of a collaborative effort with our partners at Transport Workers Union Local 250A to bring a more modern look and new, higher tech fabric and knits and make sure the hard-working men and women of Muni can be comfortable and sharp.
A New Look for Muni
The new color scheme was chosen by an overwhelming majority of operators through a month-long survey.
Uniform selections include:
- Light gray woven shirts with additional pencil pockets
- Light gray knit polo shirts
- Dark gray trousers (winter and summer weight)
- Dark gray shorts and skirts
- Black sweaters (v-neck and quarter-zip)
- Black reversible jackets with multiple liners
- Black Softshell jackets
- High-visibility, reversible waterproof jackets and pants
Muni Uniforms Through the Years
Muni’s outgoing brown uniforms made their appearance in 1981, replacing olive drab-colored uniforms with maroon trim, a yellow shirt and a snappy maroon tie that had been used since 1968. Before that, Muni uniforms were generally navy blue and often featured buttons. Conductors who wore a coin-counting device would usually wear the jacket unbuttoned.
