My sincere apologies for not posting a lot here lately... Been very busy taking new photos all over the region. But, a great reward is that you'll get to see so many brand new photos that it'll be tough to pick a particular topic or two!

Part 1: at and around Concord BART Station. Concord is the largest city in Contra Costa County, hosting to two BART stations (the other being North Concord/Martinez), and it is a pretty large suburban station with a pretty frequent (half-hourly) bus service that covers Concord, Pleasant Hill, Martinez, and Walnut Creek with County Connection and Pittsburg/Bay Point BART with Tri-Delta Transit.

Part 2: around Concord BART, with Tri-Delta Transit and BART being the stars.

Some interesting things I saw as I got off the station...

It is indeed well worth the wait, especially that I have my camera with me all the time and take pictures from so many places around the region. In fact, I hinted one of your members yesterday: "anything transit-related I take at a particular place could end up being shown here", and you'll get another boost of it after these messages.

Thanks, Sydney! I know you've been busy (I am too), and I just do my best to post those wonderful images when I can.

So, for today, I'll showcase two entirely different sets of transit photos, a mix-up mash-up of bus images around the Bay Area, particularly in San Francisco and Oakland.

Part 1: San Francisco Muni buses around the Financial District, San Francisco.

For today, some more taxis around Union Square and Powell Street BART/Muni Metro Station in San Francisco. From my Flickr collection.

My apologies if I haven't updated this thread for a long time, but I've taken so much time taking so many new transit photos that I've crossed 10,000 transit images on my Flickr collection this week. And by the way, I'm in the process of renaming my newest pictures to have descriptive names to a point that I've made a standardized format to name images... and I've been receiving quite a lot of likes and invites to add them to larger transit-related albums on Flickr. I'll do my best to post as many new images as possible this weekend, covering multiple transit agencies and multiple locations.

First up: San Francisco Muni buses along Market Street, especially focusing on the agency's newest bus type, the New Flyer Xcelsior XDE40 Hybrid Bus.

And here's a little note of late: the 5-Fulton service now has a complementary limited-stop service, called the 5L-Fulton Limited. Details on the following services are as follows:

- The 5L-Fulton Limited line, which started operations last 28 October 2013, operates weekdays only between 7am and 7pm, and it runs the full line between the Temporary Transbay Terminal and Ocean Beach. This bus service uses the 40' trolleybuses currently in use also for the 5-Fulton local service running at all other times (including late nights), and while the service stops at all stops along Market Street, it makes fewer stops along McAllister Street and Fulton Street (between Central Ave and 6th Ave). It is a pilot test program as part of the City and County of San Francisco's Transit Effectiveness Project (TEP), which is managed by the San Francisco Municipal Transportation Authority. The following stops are served by the 5L:

-- All stops on Market Street
-- McAllister & Jones (outbound only)
-- McAllister & Leavenworth (inbound only)
-- McAllister & Van Ness (connects to the 47-Van Ness and 49-Van Ness/Mission bus lines, as well as Golden Gate Transit on McAllister & Hyde)
-- McAllister & Fillmore (connects to the 22-Fillmore bus line)
-- McAllister & Divisadero (connects to the 24-Divisadero bus line)
-- Fulton & Masonic (connects to the 43-Masonic bus line)
-- Fulton & Parker/Shrader (for University of San Francisco and St. Mary's Hospital)
-- Fulton & Arguello (connects to the 33-Stanyan bus line)
-- Fulton & 6th Ave
-- All stops on Fulton Street west of 6th Ave

This line is intended for passengers traveling between Market Street, Civic Center, Alamo Square (albeit a little walk from Fulton Street), Inner Richmond, and Outer Richmond, and with fewer stops, this service can save several minutes for commuters traveling crosstown along McAllister and Fulton Streets.

- While the 5L is in service, the 5-Fulton local service operates as a short-line service, in which it makes all stops between the Temporary Transbay Terminal and Fulton St & 6th Ave (at Golden Gate Park). This line uses the brand new New Flyer Xcelsior XDE40 Hybrid Buses (!!!), in which it provides additional service to areas not served by the 5L, and it is intended for passengers traveling between Market Street, Civic Center, Jefferson Square, NoPa, and Inner Richmond. And when the 5L stops operating, this line will resume full-line service between the Temporary Transbay Terminal and Ocean Beach, stopping at all stops.

So, here's a preview of what to look out for...

5 and 5L combined bus stop on Market Street:

5L-Fulton Limited inbound service:

5-Fulton inbound service:

5L-Fulton Limited outbound service:

5-Fulton outbound service (between 7am and 7pm weekdays):

5-Fulton operating at other times:

Thanks, my friends!

@capricorn Yes, those fares are the same with visitors and tourists. And the Clipper Card is similar to the Oyster Card in London wherein one can load cash on a card and use it on multiple transit agencies around the San Francisco Bay Area without needing to look at how much you've got left. It is a contact-less smart card that allows you also to put in commuter passes and monthly passes, making your commute around the region much easier and quicker... and some agencies also provide discounts for Clipper users (e.g. free transfers between buses, fare credits and discounts, pay your parking fees, etc) that allow a seamless travel experience. As of today, nine agencies accept the Clipper Card, allowing you to travel between Santa Rosa and San Jose with ease. And, should you want a Clipper Card, get one at a Bay Area Walgreens (pharmacy) or at a fare vending machine at Embarcadero, Montgomery, Powell, Civic Center (all BART/Muni Metro stations), or at the Ferry Building.
