Our mostly funky, aged coaches are rarely pleasing to the eye, but starting today the winning works from the 2017 San Francisco Beautiful competition will inject a touch more culture and tranquility into your daily commute.

Muni rolls out new local art on buses

When your bus finally gets here, at least it will be culturally enriching, as 100 Muni coaches bear the works of five local artists starting today. Meanwhile, gears are already turning to get next year’s works.

I love the idea of bringing more local art in public space ... what if we expanded this program in the Muni stations?!

Do you think that San Francisco needs a good cleaning? Is the City dirtier in your neighborhood than it ever has been?

Tell us more! If you have specific areas of San Francisco that you think need a good cleaning because they haven’t been cleaned in a long, long time, email us (sfbeautiful.org/contact/)! We are putting together a group to take on a close look at this issue.

In order to be effective we need to hear from you! You are invited to send pictures that we will post on our Facebook page: Coalition for a Clean San Francisco: www.facebook.com/cleansf

A clean San Francisco will thank you!
