Vehicle of 2019: DDOT's 2019 New Flyer XD40s and XD60s.
Events of 2019: The August trip to Chicago/Northwest Indiana, which provided me with a ride into and out of Chicago on the South Shore Line's EMUs, plus some fanning of the CTA's bus and "L" systems and even Amtrak and Metra opportunities as a river tour brought us past Union Station. Later that month, as I already knew SMART had resumed their summer promotion with the Detroit Zoo from 2018, it provided me with another chance to ride SMART's Fast express pre-BRT service (shortly afterward, said promotion became permanent year-round).
Disliked move of 2019 by a transit agency: The proposal by SMART to reroute the 125 Fort Street-Eureka Road away from within walking distance of my house, which fortunately hasn't been made a reality.
Transit WTF moment of 2019: The apparent news that's now coming out about SMART cancelling trips for no reason.
Transit agency of 2019: SMART for finally retiring all of their old and ragtag Gillig Low Floors, and CTA for their huge and complex multimodal transit system covering the city of Chicago.
Photo of the 2010s:
Vehicle of the 2010s: DDOT's Nova RTSes and New Flyer Xcelsiors and SMART's Gillig BRTs and New Flyer D40LFs.
Event of the 2010s: A ride on the Q-Line during it's initial public operation week in May 2017.
Disliked move of the 2010s by a transit agency: Black Monday in 2011 when SMART eliminated one-third of their routes and eliminated non-peak hour service within the city of Detroit.
Transit WTF moment of the 2010s: DDOT's elimination of the 36 Oakland in favor of extending two other routes, one of which would have it's extension be, in turn, replaced by the new 42 Mid-City Loop in 2017; at least two of SMART's Gillig BRT orders being delayed due to Clever Devices manufacturing issues.
Transit agency of the 2010s: DDOT for their successful recovery from their crisis days of the early 2010's, their expanding their fleet and their rebranding.
