Ep. 134: An evening with Mr. Boston, Muni operator Muni Diaries

    • Society & Culture

Many of you might know Mike Delia better as Mr. Boston, an operator on the F-Market and an impressive list of standard lines across town. Hailing from Massachusetts, he got bit by the transit bug when he was just 5 years old, riding the bus with his father, who was also an operator. You can often find him wearing his distinctive operator's cap on the F line, perhaps even on Car No. 1059 -- painted in his hometown Boston livery. 
At Muni Diaries Live last month, Mike shared the story of his journey as a transit operator, which brought him to San Francisco, and his battle with a serious illness that brought him closer to so many of his passengers.
