New, blue vibes for SF Muni buses
Nighttime Muni rides are getting a new vibe.
What's new: Blue lights!
- Captured by transit advocate Chris Arvin, Muni's fleet of 32-foot buses will shine blue interior lights at night to mitigate glare for drivers.
- The lights can't change colors, an SFMTA spokesperson confirmed, but they do turn to a regular white hue at stops when riders are exiting and entering.
What they're saying: Arvin, who was riding the 37 Corbett line when they snapped the shot, said "it's not hard to see at all" with the blue lights.
- "It feels much brighter in person than it looks in the photo," they said.
Be smart: Only Muni's "mini fleet" — which services the city's toughest-to-navigate routes, like the 35 Eureka, 36 Teresita, 37 Corbett, 39 Coit and 56 Ruthland — will get the blue light treatment for now.
- All 30 of the new, shorter buses are scheduled to roll out by early next year, though eight are out in the wild today.
