Muni's history is long and varied, filled with great moments like this publicity shot from 1969.  Muni General Manager John (Jack) M. Woods (in the driver's seat) enlisted a handful of helpers to promote new equipment with passenger comfort features in the form of a stereo music system.  Note that the three women aboard this brand new GMC Motor Coach are holding 8-track cartridges of an appropriately titled album, "Guitars on the Move."  This is just one of many SFMTA Photo Archive shots that reveal a little bit more behind San Francisco's public transit agency.
