  1. Muni plans to purchase 30 hybrid buses to replace the 30-foot Orions. Contract approval will happen in early 2021 with delivery by March 2022. More info: https://www.sfexaminer.com/news/sfmta-to-purchase-30-new-hybrid-buses-designed-to-serve-currently-dormant-routes/ Here is 30-foot Orion 8509 on Route 37. Taken on 5/10/19 at Masonic & Haight.
  2. They are all retired. 10 are kept as contingency fleet. The rest have been auctioned off. Here is 1513 with 1544 behind it at the Salesforce Transit Center on 7/16/2019.
  3. Upcoming Muni service changes: https://www.sfmta.com/blog/upcoming-muni-service-expansions-phase-rail-service-add-bus-service December 19, 2020: J-Church Metro Rail returns between Balboa Park and Church & Duboce. January 23, 2021: T-Third Street Metro Rail returns between Sunnydale and Embarcadero Station All-day 8AX bus service on weekdays 15-Bayview-Hunters Point Express begins service 22-Fillmore now going to Mission Bay replacing the 55-16th Street route. The 55-Dogpatch will serve the area the 22 will no longer serve with a different route. 2
  4. Muni will be installing nine charging stations at Woods Division starting next month. The first electric buses will be delivered in spring 2021. More info here: https://www.sfmta.com/blog/first-step-battery-electric-muni-buses Spring 2021 may also be the time when Muni Metro resumes. I wonder what will happen first: Muni Metro returning or Muni testing electric buses. Ivy the New Flyer XE40 demonstrator on Market Street on 6/7/2018.
  5. Some trolleybuses are running on the routes still in service. The XT60s are not being used right now, but should come back in a week along with subway service. No streetcars and cable cars are in service, although they can sometimes be spotted out on the street in testing.
  6. Here is the roster of cable cars: https://www.streetcar.org/roster/ However, a cable car is missing from that list - "Big 19". More info here: https://www.streetcar.org/cablecars/19-no-19-s-c-sacramento-clay-streets-1930s-livery/
  7. Muni Metro rail service will return in August - with changes. Lines include surface-only J-Church to Market, surface-only KL-Ingleside/Taraval, MT-Ocean View/Third Street, N-Judah, and S-Shuttle between Embarcadero and West Portal. I wonder if the S will use 3-car Siemens trains in the tunnel. View the map below and this link for more information: https://www.sfmta.com/blog/big-changes-ahead-when-muni-rail-returns-august
  8. 8706 on Route 7 (Taken 6/17/2020) Here is the current 7-Line terminal at Funston & Irving. Buses don't usually stay there for a long time (if they stay at all). Taken 6/17/2020.

  11. 8651, 8848, and 8851 on Route 9R (Taken 5/19/2020) The 9R returned to service yesterday.

  13. According to the Wiki, this bus (697) and 698 became SCRTD 50-0998 and 50-0999. They were methanol powered MAN SÜ 240 buses. https://cptdb.ca/wiki/index.php/Golden_Gate_Transit#Retired
  14. I have noticed that the build years for San Francisco MUNI's New Flyer XDE60s are not consistent between the main MUNI page and the roster pages. In addition to that, there are inconsistencies between units 6585-6587. The model year on the roster page is 2016, but that doesn't match the VIN on the New Flyer VIN page (they are listed as 2015 models with a different VIN). 6585's VIN is in the 2016 VIN page as an unknown bus. I believe that since 6585-6587 are 2016 models, they should belong in the 6588-6628 roster page instead of the 6560-6587 roster to match things up. Those three buses al
  15. As far as I know, all of the XT40s have updated destination signs. 5799 on Route 24 (Taken 2/26/2020) 5702 on Route 6 (Taken 2/26/2020) 5711 on Route 6 (Taken 2/26/2020)
