San Francisco Muni Metro

The San Francisco metro is operated by two separate companies: MUNI and BART. The two companies share four stations in the heart of San Francisco: Civic Center, Powell, Montgomery and Embarcadero. In order to switch between the two networks it is necessary to buy a ticket for each one.

While BART travels to the areas further from the city, the MUNI Metro (Municipal Transport Agency) tours the heart of the city. We can describe it as a kind of light rail link, with underground as well as above-ground stations.

If you are going to stay in the city for a few days, it is worth having a look at the Muni Passport or the CityPASS.
