SFMTA Director of Transportation John Haley has confirmed Saturday and Sunday, September 24-25 as Muni Heritage Weekend 2016, co-sponsored by SFMTA and Market Street Railway.
More details are soon to come, but we know that special vintage streetcars will operate on both the E-Embarcadero and F-Market & Wharves historic streetcar lines. Vintage buses will offer free rides downtown, and 1906 O’Farrell, Jones & Hyde cable car No. 42 (restored by MSR and Muni) will operate on the California Street cable car line. Hours of operation for all the vintage vehicles are 10 a.m.-5 p.m. both days.
Additionally, we’ll have a special memorabilia sale and presentations at our San Francisco Railway Museum, from which the vintage buses will leave.
Again, more details coming soon, but for you friends of vintage San Francisco transit who live across the country or an ocean, start making your plans now!
