It's almost as fast as walking.™ by 

“It’s almost as fast as walking.” isn’t the San Francisco Municipal Transportation Department’s official slogan. But it should be!

The idea for this shirt came to me when I was working in North Beach and living in NOPA. My best time walking to work was 47 minutes, and getting there on the bus often took just under an hour.

It’s a tribute to both the classic 1970s SF MUNI logo and an iconic 1970s font, Souvenir.

Alternate version: You can’t spell abuse without bus

    Too true. Good color use on their fast-food coloring as well.

    I very well may get one of these. Better plan ahead – don’t want to wear it if I take MUNI! The passengers might like it; the MUNI drivers…not so much.

  • Don’t worry, I’ve never had a MUNI driver even so much as notice it.
