It should be noted that the construction seen here (in the street in front of the Apple Store) is for the new Crosstown Subway which is "transit" also.

Hehehe indeed. I have remembered that, but it isn't operational at the moment, though. and by the way, that would be the Market Street/Union Square station, in which it will have tunnels heading to and from Powell Station (for Muni Metro and BART).

For today: scenes from and around the Windsor Depot in Downtown Windsor. Located around 10 miles northwest of Santa Rosa, this serves as the "town center" and transit hub for a town that will soon have its rail service restored when the Sonoma-Marin Area Rail Transit (SMART) train starts operation in 2015 or 2016.

Bonus collection: in connection with my latest bonus collection on Mendocino Avenue in Santa Rosa on Bay Area in Pictures, I have also taken transit images along the busy corridor as well.

For today, I will share some new pictures from AC Transit, including the newest bus to hit East Bay's streets, the Gillig LF40 low-floor bus.

Some San Francisco Muni buses I've taken of late once again...











...and I sense that this bus type's days are numbered...

Usually, I would take pics of bus exteriors, but once in a while, I also take pics of a bus' interior... so here's a collection of some interior shots I've taken from several transit agencies.

County Connection Gillig low-floor 40-footer bus



San Francisco State University shuttle



San Francisco Muni, NABI 40-footer bus



San Francisco Muni, electric trolleybus



Union City Transit, Orion VII 35-footer bus



More to come.

For today, more pictures of San Francisco Muni buses.

















And lately, Muni has been replacing its older bus stops with these "Wave" bus shelters that have small solar panels installed on the roof:

Bonus showcase: I'm still thinking of riding the VINE (no, not the grapevine) that will bring me to and from Napa County so that I can spend a whole day in the City of Napa, taking transit pics, savoring the views alone, and exploring the area all by myself.

You have an excellent compilation of the Bay Area's mass transit systems going on over here, fieldofdreams! Great job!

Thanks, my friend! That's what you get when you have someone who takes public transit so often, it is out of choice rather than necessity. And by the way, what you're seeing now are just a handful of images of the roughly 11,000 images I have on transit in the Bay Area alone. And no, I'm not making the number up.

Also, if you want to request what transit agency you'd like to see more, feel free to ask and I will do my best to take those pics.

Let me catch up on this thread with two notes:

• From this collection, you can check out the image details on my Photobucket account, as well as an opportunity for you to download it if you want the picture.
• Since I checked today that my Photobucket account is now full (despite the fact that I've been with them for seven years and have a Plus account with them), I will start uploading photos soon from my own Flickr account as an overflow Pro account. I will indicate when I do my showcase from now on from which album I've been uploading my pics from so that I will stay in compliance with forum rules, especially with Flickr.

For today, I will show my latest takes from BART, particularly at Richmond Station. This station is a intermodal regional hub, in which BART, Amtrak, AC Transit, and Golden Gate Transit services meet that provide connections to many places in California, notably San Francisco, East Bay (Oakland, Fremont, Martinez), North Bay (San Rafael), South Bay (San Jose), Sacramento, the Central Valley, and Southern California. It is also a stop for the California Zephyr train, which connects Emeryville and Chicago via Sacramento, Reno, Salt Lake City, Denver, Omaha, and other smaller cities and communities over six states. From my Flickr collection.
