Bus Bombing

Ever wonder how the graffiti gets on the bus? Here's how it happens in San Francisco...

What about the bus driver? At that rate I guess all the buses are covered in the stuff.

it never ceases to amaze me how often we turn a blind eye

I used to tag the 71, the 33, the 24, the 22, the 14, the 5, the N, the J, and the K and L and M lines with stickers for my friend's band -- BUT THAT'S ALL! I SWEAR!

Anyway, so where do you come down on this issue, being a MUNI employee and all?

Hard not to think that if that energy went someplace more... uh... useful, there'd be less chance we'll be seeing boxcar-bombing on the way to the camps.

I think the other riders just view it as a normal day on the bus.

The driver isn't going to do anything about it either. Look at how fast these guys work. By the time the driver even notices anything, it's too late.


I know about the stickers. We have you on video. The funny thing about it is that I have actually worked on two of the buses in this video. Most of the buses have graffiti in one form or another, either spray painting or scratches on the windows. When I posted the video, I thought about what my position was about graffiti and I can't say that I have a strong opinion about it either way. I feel bad that the folks riding the bus have to look at it.

I'd love to see these kids out freewayblogging, but seeing how hard it was to get politically motivated adults to do it, I don't see it happening.

Freeway expressed my feeling about it.

Have you ever gone to the Wooster Collective site? All graffiti all the time. As for me and graffiti, I think it's an art form if done well.

Very cool site, Mary. Thanks. I couldn't agree with you more. There's some absolutely beautiful graffiti and murals in the Mission District here in San Francsico.
