A latest update from here: since 8pm last night PDT (3am GMT), the San Francisco-Oakland Bay Bridge had been closed off to all vehicular traffic except for the following:

- Treasure Island and Yerba Buena Island residents and workers with permits
- San Francisco Muni bus line 108, which operates between the Transbay Terminal and Treasure Island

The closure will take effect until 5am on 3 September (12nn GMT), and while AC Transit will truncate its Transbay buses to start and end their trips at four BART stations, BART will run its trains round the clock for the duration of the closure, with hourly trips to 14 stations and a transfer to all trains is available at MacArthur BART. Additional ferry services will be provided, and motorists and travelers are encouraged to use mass transit to get around to lessen the blow on the region's highway network.

Details and updates can be found on the following:

- ABC7 News: Yerba Buena Live Cam
- Alert 511 Bay Area
- Bay Bridge Info
- CBS San Francisco

For today, I have so much more transit pictures to share from around San Francisco... from my Flickr collection.

Part 1: from today, you can take advantage of bike sharing here in the San Francisco Bay Area. Called Bay Area Bike Share, this service allows casual cyclists and those performing short errands to rent bikes from rack locations around San Francisco, Redwood City, Palo Alto, Mountain View, and San Jose, with additional locations to be added as this program continues to be rolled out in other cities and counties around the region. I have a preview of it from Redwood City here, and now, you can see what the actual bikes look like, complete with the racks and billing machine. The machines can show you instructions in English, Chinese, and Spanish (with other languages to follow, hopefully, for tourists to use).

First rental station I found in the City is across from the Ferry Building.

This particular rental station is located on Market Street farside of Fourth Street (also crossing with Stockton and Ellis Streets), near the Powell BART/Muni Metro Station.

Part 5: since I introduced on this thread San Francisco Muni's latest bus type, the New Flyer Xcelsior XD40 Hybrid, I have seen even more of them in service... here are a few of them I've seen:

Great to see the bike sharing system has been introduced in San Fransisco too!

We've got them in Brussels and Antwerp and they are very, very succesful.

Ah yes. I will test the system out when I get a chance and document my ride through pictures! Hopefully, this bike sharing services will be successful over time, similar to those in Europe...

For today, even more images from around San Francisco, from my Flickr collection.

Part 1: various transit vehicles along Van Ness Avenue, heading south towards Market Street. Also includes Muni bus interiors.

Part 2: Muni Metro Van Ness Station, located on Market Street and Van Ness Avenue. This is an "unofficial transfer point" where passengers heading to and from the J-Church and N-Judah lines will need to switch trains here since those will head out from the Market Street Tunnel on Duboce & Church Streets (a switch is located due southwest of the station, closer to Church Station). Alternatively, passengers could also get out at either Duboce & Church (on the N-Judah line) or Church & Market (on the J-Church line) to access Church Station as well to get to and from the K, L, M, and T train.

Part 4: Golden Gate Transit buses around Marin County and San Francisco.

And it looks like my city is being promoted on buses too... at least on this one:

I'm really stunned at the variety of bus styles in a city.. I think I have been quite unobservant and just assumed most of them looked alike when they do not!

I take my time to walk around so many parts of San Francisco and around the Bay Area because I understand the very diverse and rich nature of the public transit network here, to a point that I have been to all stations on BART and most of Caltrain, as well as riding the busiest bus lines, not just for experience but also as a way for me to get around... I virtually mix commuting around with bus and train spotting, walking around neighborhoods, and enjoying the best each city I visit has to offer. It just happens that on some trips, I also get a ride through my uncle who attends meetings in the South Bay, and I end up taking pictures as far south as San Jose. And by the way, I still have so much to share from my Photobucket collection too that I haven't touched for weeks!

And by the way, when you visit San Francisco, will you try out Bay Area Bike Share too? I know you really love biking around, that's why...

So for today, another multi-part showcase will be coming your way... from my Flickr collection.

Part 1: at Powell BART Station in San Francisco.

Part 2: at and around Glen Park BART Station in San Francisco. This is the only San Francisco BART Station that has its own Park-and-Ride, and this primarily serves the neighborhoods of Glen Park, Excelsior, Diamond Heights, and Sunnyside. This is the closest stop for Twin Peaks, Saint Francis Wood, and Portola neighborhoods, in which most areas can be reached by Muni bus lines 23 (Monterey), 36 (Teresita), 44 (O'Shaughnessy), and 52 (Excelsior).

Part 3: various taxis around San Francisco.

Here's another taxicab from Santa Clara I've spotted in San Francisco... I wonder what he's doing some 50 miles away from his base?
