San Francisco Municipal Railway 100 -- December 28, 2012
The San Francisco Municipal Railway was the first significant muncipal transit company in the United States, opening its first electric streetcar line, the A Geary, on 28-December-1912. Muni had been preceeded by the West Seattle Municipal Railway (1900-????) and the Monroe, Louisiana, Municipal Street Railway (1906-present), which is still operating as the Monroe Transit System.
Today, in honor of the 100th birthday, Muni is offering free rides to all.
