Several years ago, artist John Kuzich began collecting Muni Fast Passes for an art project that is nearing completion. He’s created a number of small collages and completed three out of a set of four large panels using the passes. Along with flyers posted around town and word of mouth, Market Street Railway helped John connect with riders and their accumulated passes through our website, and our member newsletter, Inside Track. The public response to his appeal for donated passes has been phenomenal.
Today, thanks to John, Market Street Railway is the recipient of a nearly complete archive of Muni Fast Passes — from their introduction in May of 1974 to the present day. To complete this set, we need passes for the months of May, June, and August, 1974. John also needs extra copies of April and May, 1976 — difficult to find as Muni was on strike at the time.
Our thanks go to John for his outstanding job of conserving and displaying this unique aspect of living in San Francisco.
