New line offers free ride to MLK Jr. festivities at Civic Center Plaza today 

In honor of Martin Luther King Jr. Day today, Muni is offering a free ride — and a commemorative ticket -— to passengers traveling from the T-Third Street light rail’s Sunnydale/Bayshore platform to festivities for the civil rights hero at Civic Center Plaza.

Since 1985, a Martin Luther King Jr. commemoration has been held at the Bill Graham Civic Auditorium, drawing thousands of celebrants from all over the Bay Area.

This year, Muni is offering its own "Freedom Train," which will begin at the southeast end of the T-Third line at Sunnydale Boulevard and Bayshore Avenue at 11:15 a.m. Passengers starting at this platform will be given a special ticket that will allow them to ride all the way to Civic Center Plaza — and back — for free.
