Oh yes... those Market Street streetcars look pretty amazing, especially for a really diverse and cosmopolitan city like San Francisco. I am very pleased you like those, and it's been quite a while for me to post such images (along with my other flagship threads on Urban Showcase) on a regular basis. But, starting next week, I will do my best to resume posting so many new photos to all those threads I have here.

For today, it's interesting that despite the initial hits and misses I've had, I've finally gotten to see another brand new bus running Bay Area streets... this time, from SamTrans in San Mateo County, it's the brand new Gillig BRT 40-foot low floor hybrid electric bus. Yes, it's unique to this agency, and 25 of them are now operational around the county. I found one of them at Colma BART Station, and as my bus left the station, I saw at least three more coming in. I will post more when I get a chance, but here's a preview, along with other SamTrans buses at Colma BART:

Thanks, Robert! I've been to San Jose and Santa Clara County quite a few times too that I've shared quite a lot of images from there. If you'd like to see more pics from Santa Clara County, just let me know so that I can post them. Alternatively, search "Santa Clara VTA" on this thread so that you can see those hybrid buses and light rail images I've taken over time.

It is a low-floor, hybrid bus (operated by diesel and electric power) that can run as fast as around 50 mph, but with city streets and traffic, the speed will be much lower. Around fifty of those buses now operate in the City, replacing the older Neoplan AN440 buses (perhaps it could also replace the older NABI 416 high floor buses from the Kirkland Division), and those are based out of the Woods Division near the Mission District.

Before I close out the year, I'll be doing a special presentation of some mass transit images away from the Bay Area: in the summer, I went to Davis (close to Sacramento) along with my classmates from the Transportation Planning class at UC Berkeley to check out the city's bicycle culture... it turns out that through decades of lobbying city officials and prodding from businesses, Davis has earned the highest possible rating (Platinum) among American cities in terms of accessibility through bicycles. And it doesn't only cover the city proper; it also extends to the University of California, Davis, where most of its paved pathways are accessible to cyclists as well. From my Flickr collection.
