Seems like San Francisco's MUNI transit system is getting some help from 20 Yahoo bus shelters. Known for their notoriously long wait times, commuters will now be able to pass the time by playing video games installed into each of these stops.

Essentially, the Yahoo bus shelters have been outfitted with touch-capable digital video screens. These screens house a handful of games from shape puzzles to trivia. You can amass up to 100 points playing and select which neighborhood you want to donate those points to. The neighborhood with the most points by Jan. 28 wins an exclusive party with the band OK Go.
