So here we go with one of the key themes of my photo collection: the Golden Gate Bridge. I chose it as both a feature for Bay Area in Pictures and Bay Area Transit in Pictures, not only because it is a spectacular bridge of its own, but it also carries thousands of vehicles per day between Marin County and San Francisco, providing a vital link for the North Bay of the San Francisco Bay Area.

Its livery. I have read before somewhere that Philadelphia used to have Red Arrow trolley system. And my guess was right

P.S. Keep pictures coming!

Wonderful. Here is a description of the streetcar, along with other interesting facts about its previous operation.

Thanks a lot for this link! And it was manufactured by St. Louis Car Company, right?

Indeed. There are just less than ten streetcars of that type in operation here.

A little preview to my upcoming collection on Bay Area in Pictures: guess what part of San Francisco is this picture taken:



Included in the photo: a Muni bus and a Yellow Cab Cooperative taxi.

I've been away for some time that I had the time to take even more transit pics... Let me do some bonus collections:

Part 1: I truly miss riding the ferry between Larkspur and San Francisco that whenever I see these ferries, it makes me want to ride them again...

Just make a good guess, and I'll make it easy. Clue: it's a city that is definitely not to miss in the West Coast.

Mhmm. That particular livery is from Los Angeles Transit Lines, one of two streetcar companies that operated in the city prior to its dismantling in favor of its infamously clogged freeway network.

Bonus, part 2: Muni loves to wrap its buses with ads, from half a bus length to full wraps. Here's a small sample:

Sorry that I haven't updated this thread for days since I was out and about taking so many new transit pictures... And here's your reward: tons of new images compiled as one bonus collection after another!

Part 1 of my bonus collection: AC Transit buses, during the PM peak leaving San Francisco.

Thanks a lot, mate! Good question on the percentage of people who take public transit in the San Francisco Bay Area... Let me check the latest figures for you because as far as I recall, the region has the largest percentage of public transit users west of Chicago, but, I want to find accurate statistics to back it up.
