A Small Peek at the S.F. Muni Metro Light Rail

I don't know why 1) I have been taking pictures of the Muni's Metro Light rail, 2) Why I am doing this blog?? Anyway, since I took the pics I might as well share them.

San Francisco is a huge public transit place. They have Muni buses above ground all over the city and then they have the Muni Metro Light Rail. It is the subway for just San Francisco. Here are the facts: The Muni Metro system consists of 71.5 miles (115.1 km) of standard gauge track, seven light rail lines (six regular lines and one peak-hour line), three tunnels, nine subway stations, twenty-four surface stations and eighty-seven surface stops. It goes above ground in many places around the city and will take you to the zoo, shopping districts and to AT&T Park among other places:

To be honest I have a love/hate relationship with Muni Metro Light Rail. It is great when it is working but there are a lot of delays and that is when I hate it-lol. 


  1. I dont know how I would do in a train underground, I am claustrophobic. Looks neat though. Thanks for stopping by to link up!!

    1. It is interesting. I guess I am used to it. It is my pleasure to link up. Hope you had a great weekend.

  2. Hi Patrick! I found your post on the Weekends are Fun blog hop. Thank you for this little view of the subway! A subway is something I will probably never experience in person, so it was fun to see it through your eyes. :-) Have a great day!

    1. LOL-I finally figured out how to get rid of it.

  5. I used MARTA in Atlanta a few times when I lived there. It is huge for a lot of people there. Particularly for getting to and from the airport. Thanks for sharing this on Traffic Jam Weekend, Patrick.

    1. You are welcome.

      Muni Metro is a vital link around the city that is depends on public transportation.
