It's time for another Guess the Streetcar... without looking at any of the decals, where do you think this streetcar livery comes from?

I'm always fascinated with vintage buses but this thread makes me more interested and fascinated with what in it.
Hey FOD, did you shoot those Union city transit in Union City? If yes, that's quite a far distance from where you live, I'm guessing it's about 2 hours trip one way on public transpo.
and did you pass by Jolibee?

Yes I took all of them from Union City BART, and I actually did that with my Fremont trip on Bay Area in Pictures. Perhaps I will share even more from the East Bay when I get a chance because I sometimes go using BART anywhere between Richmond and Fremont, and it takes around 1.5 to 2 hours (including transfers) between home and Union City.

Yes there's a Jollibee, Red Ribbon, and a Seafood City (Filipino supermarket) in Union City... but at different locations, though. Jollibee is at Union Landing, the other two at Alvarado Shopping Center.

Anytime, Josh. Anytime. What do you think of the station area? Maybe I'll have in and around Church and Market as my bonus showcase on Bay Area in Pictures! It's like, I got out of the M-Ocean View train from SF State, took pictures around the area for roughly 10 minutes, and hopped on an N-Judah train to the Ballpark since I was en route to a field trip!

I just remember that area from the late '80s when I lived in SF. Was always active, and very eclectic. It looks like it still is!

Well, you've only seen the transit part of Church and Market: here is the rest of the story. Enjoy!

Those are great shots my friend. I really, REALLY appreciate you putting these photos on here for all of us. Having lived in SF, I miss it all the more everyday, but your photos help me out a LOT.

Whoops, I sent you a wrong link! It would be the one after that! Just head to Bay Area in Pictures and find the Church and Market collection after the Broadway walk, part 4.

For today, I will show you part 2 of Oakland International Airport. Coming soon, the AirBART bus will be replaced by an Airport Connector System by BART, in which, hopefully, it will attract even more riders and allow quicker access to and from OAK.

Since I've been away the past several days, I will be posting mini collections of my latest transit pics from around the region, including many brand new ones!

Mini collection, part 1: scenes from the recently renovated Santa Rosa Transit Mall. This transit center is the main hub for bus services operating to and around the city of Santa Rosa, the county seat of Sonoma County. The Mall offers connections to four transit agencies, namely:

• Santa Rosa CityBus, operating mostly within Santa Rosa
• Sonoma County Transit, operating around Sonoma County, with the Transit Mall being its main hub
• Golden Gate Transit, operating to and from San Francisco, Marin County, Petaluma, Cotati, and Rohnert Park
• Mendocino Transit Authority, operating to and from Point Arena (Bodega Bay) and Ukiah in Mendocino County

Mini collection, part 2: Forest Hill Muni Metro Station, San Francisco. This station, located along the Twin Peaks Tunnel, is the only stop in between West Portal and Castro Stations; near Castro Station, the two tunnels (Twin Peaks and the Market Street Subway) meet with two abandoned portals (one entrance, one exit) that provided the connection between the overground Market Street streetcar lines with the underground (and much older) Twin Peaks tunnel which allowed the historic streetcars on Market Street to travel to Ocean Beach, Ocean View, and Ingleside.

I remember using this station as a "secret" transfer point when I travel between Downtown or Union Square and City College of San Francisco (Ocean Campus). While most people know Balboa Park BART and City College (on the K-Ingleside) Muni Metro stations, what they don't know is that I can reach City College the back way when I sense that delays persist on the K-Ingleside line via the 43-Masonic bus line (also formerly on the 36-Teresita bus line as well).

Mini collection, part 3: another round of transit shots on Church & Market, San Francisco. Comparing this set of photos to the previous set I posted a week ago, Church Street between Duboce and 16th Streets has its center lanes (closest to the "median") painted in red, with the lanes saying "Bus and Taxi Only". That special red lane is a pilot project of the San Francisco Municipal Transportation Authority in which the leftmost lanes (closest to the median) will be converted from a general-use traffic lane to a transit-only lane (painted in a distinct red color with carpool diamonds and lane markers indicated in white) so that transit vehicles (buses, Muni Metro, and taxis) can zip through the more-congested general use lanes and allow for a quicker, smoother ride along San Francisco's busiest corridors.

Here's something I observe quite a lot on board buses and on bus stops: graffiti, especially in public transportation vehicles and structures. These are from Muni lately:

Thanks, Christos!

Here's my latest set for today: Golden Gate Transit buses from last Friday, running on regular schedule instead of a "holiday" schedule (since Good Friday is not observed as a holiday in California)

My showcase for today: San Francisco Muni's cable cars. You'll notice some differences between the California Street cable cars and those operating on Powell Street (both for Powell-Hyde and Powell-Mason)...
