The failed experiment that is the CultureBus -- a very slow, yellow Muni bus that would take passengers around San Francisco (downtown to Golden Gate Park) to look at art and trees, running every hour or so -- will come to a merciful end. According to SFMTA, the CultureBus will be discontinued effective August 15.

Designed to "provide both residents and visitors with a new eco-friendly transportation alternative to and between San Francisco's popular museums and cultural institutions," the bus was popular with neither locals nor tourists. And for $7 a ride, the CultureBus never found a following.

Did you ever take a ride on the 74X? If so, why?
