Some say the new color reminds them of Dodger blue, Muni tweeted that the Dodgers don't have monopoly on Blue. The old red logo will remain on Muni's fleet of busses and trains.
The Dodgers don't have a monopoly on blue :) The blue was chosen to put us more in sync with other city agencies that utilize the color, as well as an homage to departments within our agency --such as DPT-- that have had blue as their primary color.— SFMTA (@sfmta_muni) May 2, 2018
We agree. Muni orange beats Dodger blue any day. To be clear: The Muni "worm" and its related color schemes will continue as the logo for the Municipal Railway transit system. The SFMTA operates Muni and this is a new logo for the overall agency.— SFMTA (@sfmta_muni) May 2, 2018
