Muni routes serving city schools
Did you know most schools are within a five-minute walk of a Muni stop?
It's easy to ride transit to or from school. Every middle and high school in the San Francisco Unified School District is served by at least one Muni route. There's even a special "school trippers" service, the supplemental Muni routes that begin after school hours and serve middle and high schools throughout the city.
