Part 3: Santa Rosa Transit Mall on Labor Day. Not surprisingly, smaller transit agencies do not provide transit services at all on this day, especially Santa Rosa CityBus and Sonoma County Transit. Instead, Golden Gate Transit and Mendocino Transit Authority provide limited, if not hourly, regional services connecting Santa Rosa with San Francisco to the south and Mendocino County to the north.

My apologies if I haven't updated any of my threads for days now... from my Flickr collection.

For today, I will share yet another new arrival: yes, it's another brand new bus type, and this time, it's from AC Transit: the transit agency serving the Inner East Bay (western Alameda and Contra Costa Counties, plus Transbay services to San Francisco, San Mateo, and Santa Clara Counties) has introduced recently their latest articulated bus, the New Flyer Xcelsior XD60, which looks pretty similar to San Francisco Muni's Xcelsior XD40 Hybrid. But, this version uses conventional low-sulfur diesel as its fuel, and its low-floor layout will replace AC Transit's oldest New Flyer buses still in existence, pictured below.

And the New Flyer Xcelsior XD60 is currently being used on one of AC Transit's busiest lines, the 40-Foothill, connecting Downtown Oakland with Eastmont Transit Center.

Bonus showcase, part 2: MacArthur BART Station, Oakland. This is a major transfer point in the BART network where trains converge from the Richmond and Pittsburg/Bay Point lines and meet at the station as a timed transfer point to San Francisco, the Peninsula, and Fremont. Its northbound equivalent (to the East Bay, either Richmond or Pittsburg) would be 19th Street/Downtown Oakland BART Station, one station south.

This focuses on the paid portion of the station only, not the ground transportation options outside the fare gates.

Before moving on to even more photos, I'd like to share with you a little taste of my roots as to why I love public transportation in the first place. I was born and raised in Manila, the capital of the Philippines for 18 years before moving to San Francisco, and I recall an entirely different transit network back there... We may not have Greyhound, but we have at least a dozen or so provincial bus companies plying various expressways and highways. Our bus network mainly relies on EDSA and several other larger arterial roads, and for the smaller trunk roads and in the provinces, jeepneys rule. We may have a mass rapid transit network of trains, but intercity trains seem to be very limited, and airlines and ships ply various routes to many parts of the archipelago.

On the video below, entitled "Toughest Place to be: Bus Driver", Josh, a bus driver from London, heads to Manila and meets up with Rogelio, a jeepney driver, and both will learn from each other what it takes to be a successful and sturdy bus driver from both sides of the world. Produced by the BBC, it is an hour-long documentary, and it shows more than just how tough driving a jeep can be in my home city, but also the high incidence of poverty and slums in many parts of the capital city that could be mirrored in other parts of the Philippines. I've watched this several times, and I find this very touching and moving...

Trucks to buses? I'd say in the thousands (if not tens of thousands) because it has been done for decades as a way to carry people around. I'll ask that in a transportation thread under the Philippine Forums.

My apologies if I haven't updated this for several days... but I will do my best to post here when I have the time to do so.

For today, let me do a multi-part showcase, focusing on AC Transit and some East Bay-based agencies. Part 1: around UC Berkeley and Berkeley BART.
