It’s Big Game week in the Bay Area. (To those reading this from elsewhere, it’s our biggest college football rivalry: University of California, Berkeley, known to all its fans as simply Cal, vs. Stanford University. ) The first Big Game was in 1892, four years after cable car service started on Powell Street, one year after cable cars started running on Hyde.
As it turns out (thanks in large part to our nonprofit), Muni has a blue and gold (well, yellow) cable car, part of the Heritage Livery program we’ve championed for 30 years.
And Cal has a band.
Climb aboard. This video shows what that mix tape looks and sounds like.
The band was headed for Union Square and a celebration. Tell me this isn’t better than taking the bus.
Attention Stanford Band: Muni has red cable cars too.
