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.”
