The SF Muni Metro Rent Map: Where You Can't Afford to Live, by Stop

Published On 05/13/2015 Published On 05/13/2015

If you live in a rent-controlled apartment in San Francisco, you should definitely never-ever move. But that doesn't mean you won't dream about it from time to time... a new neighborhood, being closer to work, not living with three roommates, two cats, and your roommate's significant other who you're pretty sure doesn't have a home of his own. Well, our San Francisco Muni Metro Rent Map -- wherein we plotted out the median rent per bedroom near every Muni Metro stop (according to our best buds at Trulia) -- should help snap you out of it really quickly.

Click HERE to see the whole thing blown up, or scroll down for a line-by-line breakdown.

How'd we arrive at these numbers? The Trulia data includes apartments in census blocks -- areas roughly equivalent to city blocks, used for statistical purposes by the US Census -- located within a quarter-mile of the stop.
