Cameron Beach, who died in March of natural causes, will now be the namesake of the formerly named Geneva Yard, which since 1900 has housed Muni’s streetcar fleet that runs on its F-Market and Wharves line.

Beach, 62, served on the SFMTA board of directors for more than four years as part of a career in transportation that spanned 44 years, according to Muni officials.

“As a daily Muni rider and native San Franciscan, Cam had an unparalleled passion for Muni, our customers and the future of our system,” board chairman Tom Nolan said in a statement.

“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,” Nolan said.
