With all the grousing people like to do about Muni — and yes, there could certainly be improvements in many areas — it’s only fair to point out the positives, especially at this time of year.

I would like to salute the people who make the F-Line the fun line–the Muni operators! When passengers board and an operator greets them with a smile and a cheerful “Good Morning!,” a fun experience begins. After they have paid their fare and, if necessary, engaged in asking a question, they walk to the back of the car with a big smile. Even if the car is crowded, the goodwill given out by the operator carries over to everyone as they speed toward the Wharf or downtown.
