With its umbilical sliced, face slapped, and shivering body wrapped in a toasty blanket, the new Muni double-decker bus has finally arrived. San Francisco Sentinel has the story (as well as a few more images) for you. And we must admit: the buses are not that bad looking. With the little spray of hearts at the tail-end? Not bad at all. Your thoughts?

The buses will (temporarily) go into action on December 12. Enjoy your ride.
