    Ain't no party like a public transit party.

    It's the 100th birthday celebration of Muni, also known as the San Francisco Municipal Railway. And the bus and train line is celebrating, according to reports.

    The festivities began Sunday when Muni rolled out vintage streetcars for the J-Church line, according to the San Francisco Appeal online newspaper. Those same old-timey cars will roll down the T-Third Street line beginning next week.

    You can see vintage Muni buses at the San Francisco Railway Museum at 77 Steuart Street, and a 105-year old cable car will roll out on the California Street line on Sunday.

    Wow! Save those paper transfers.
