Tens of thousands of San Francisco commuters have probably taken a few moments to ponder this simple statement, which has been posted near the operator’s station of every Muni bus and streetcar since the early 1960s: INFORMATION GLADLY GIVEN, BUT SAFETY REQUIRES AVOIDING UNNECESSARY CONVERSATION.
The message is simultaneously friendly and forbidding, inviting yet indifferent, personable yet coldly professional.
And now, you can wear it.
Printed on a 4.5-ounce preshrunk cotton Hanes Contemporary Fit tee, Market Street Railway’s
“Information Gladly Given” shirt sets clear expectations on the street,
in the workplace, or during uncomfortable visits with estranged
relatives. You can pick one up, in small, medium, large, and extra large, while they last, at our San Francisco Railway Museum, or at our online store.
