Late Muni board director honored with streetcar yard memorial 

San Francisco Muni’s Geneva Yard has been officially renamed in honor of Cameron Beach, the former agency board member who passed away unexpectedly this spring.

Beach, a San Francisco native, had always expressed a profound interest in the historic streetcars that made up Muni’s F-Market line. In recognition of that, Muni chose the Geneva Yard — which houses those vehicles — as the site to remember Beach. On Tuesday, the agency held a ceremony dedicating the site to Beach.

Beach’s career in the transit industry spanned 44 years, including four with the San Francisco Municipal Transportation Agency, which operates Muni.

“As a daily Muni rider and native San Franciscan, Cam had an unparalleled passion for Muni, our customers and the future of this system,” SFMTA board chair Tom Nolan in a release on Tuesday. “His expertise and insight are greatly missed. This action is a fitting memorial to his legacy for this Agency, this city and the public transportation industry.”
