Long gone are the days when the SFMTA printed boldly color-blocked monthly Muni passes that riders would treasure for their clean and attractive graphic design.
It was way, way back in October 2010 when the paper Fast Passes were phased out, marking the beginning of the end for SF public transportation's quaint analog link to the past. The SFMTA followed that with the phasing out of paper bus transfers in 2017, much to the dismay of local collage artists.
Those old Fast Passes have been turned into dresses (if anyone has a photo of a garment sewn out of Muni passes please pass it along, I can't find one), printed on t-shirts and tote bags, and been used to create art.
Former San Franciscan Jen (@jenlicious) recently showed off her collection on Twitter, asking, "2 years worth of 10+ year old bus passes just like every other very normal person has??"
Below, some more collections, starting with some ca. 2009 Muni Fast Pass art by John Kuzich, photographed by Steve Rhodes.
