The Night Bus: Moving Through San Francisco After Dark

After a majority of San Francisco has gone to bed, the city’s late-night buses come to life. These buses, known as Owls, service off-peak commuters and those wandering the city in the wee hours of the morning between 1 a.m. and 5 a.m.

The Standard spent a night on the 90 San Bruno Owl.

The result is a snapshot of who uses the service and a glimpse of San Francisco at night through the eyes of a longtime Muni operator.

  • On a rainy night, when I was living on the streets, in order to stay dry, I rode the Muni Owls for a couple of hours.
    The city looks different. Lights are brighter, the shadows deeper. And while you pass though it, you feel distant from it all.
    A unique city experience that can be done at a reasonable cost.

  • Poor guy gets shot for walking on the streets of SF. Lately another 2 were shot while on Muni. Thank you SF Sups for spending all your time and attention on grandiose visions that will make you a Senator, Mayor or President someday. Riding on the backs of your constituents.
