Gary Weinstein grew up in Buffalo, New York. He chose not to go to nursing school and decided instead, in 1971, to move to San Francisco. After a couple of short-lived gigs, he got a job driving Muni buses.
In Part 1, Gary talks about his time with Muni, from his adventures while training to his distaste for driving light-rail vehicles.
In Part 2, Gary shares some of the juicier stories from behind the wheel. He ends the episode talking about what prompted him to cover his body in tattoos.
