Part 3: by request from one member, bayviews, a look around Ocean Avenue between Lee Street and Phelan Avenue in the Ingleside District. What I recall of this place was that Ocean Avenue had a bus loop (called Phelan Loop) that served as the bus terminal for Muni bus lines 8X, 8BX (peak periods only), and 49. Interestingly, all of them use articulated buses, owing to the high passenger volumes along Geneva Avenue and Mission Street, two major arterials that serve the area. Along with that, with the presence of the main campus of City College of San Francisco, it is a natural transit destination because it carries thousands of students daily to and from the college, as well as Balboa Park BART Station close by, serving as the terminal for three Muni Metro lines (J, K, and M) and hosts a large train maintenace facility. And with a brand new transit-oriented development in the area, this community has spruced up in the few years since I last visited the district.

This showcase includes multiple transit vehicles, including a Muni Metro train interior.

Part 2: San Francisco Muni buses, bus interiors, and bus stops around San Francisco.

On the picture below, one would notice that the "Muni" logo has been reversed (like a mirror image), and it's at the stop at my school.

For today, an important update for anyone traveling to and from San Francisco anytime this weekend and next week...

BART, the rapid transit service connecting the San Francisco Bay Area with 44 stations in four counties, could go on strike starting 1 July 2013 as two of its powerful unions are still negotiating on better wages and upgrading its safety standards as the current deal governing wages and employee benefits expire on 30 June 2013. Should a strike be called, all BART stations will be closed, causing inconvenience for hundreds of thousands of commuters and riders (including yours truly), and it will put a strain on transit agencies and highways with limited back-up vehicles and thousands of additional drivers on Bay Area highways and freeways. I respect the picket lines should such protests occur; however, with such a massive strike looming, the biggest concern on my end would be traveling Transbay (between San Francisco and the East Bay), in which my only options would either be AC Transit, which could also go on strike as well; taxis, in which I recall last Thursday paying $50 just to cover 15km; or casual carpooling, in which I will need to specify my destination to the driver and pay beforehand. The last time BART went on strike was in 1997.

More info and updates can be read here. I will also keep you updated of my commute progress as the strike looms on this thread.

In preparation for a looming "transit crisis", here are some BART images I took lately... from my Flickr collection.

Part 2: some County Connection buses at Walnut Creek BART Station. County Connection, based in Martinez, is a transit agency that primarily serves the central and southern portions of Contra Costa County, including:

- Alamo
- Clayton
- Concord
- Danville
- Dublin
- Lafayette
- Martinez
- Orinda
- San Ramon
- Walnut Creek

As well as Antioch (east Contra Costa County) and East Dublin/Pleasanton BART Station (Alameda/Contra Costa Counties). Its primary highways include the I-680 corridor between Martinez Bridge and I-580 in Dublin; CA-4 between Martinez and Antioch; CA-24 between Orinda and Walnut Creek; and CA-242 in Concord (although many buses do not actually use those highways as part of their routes, I have highlighted them as a reference to its general service area).
