Transit Fan Unlimited Flickr

Recommended Posts

Buzz2kb   

Hi! Due to the imminent cessation of Picasa services, I've decided to create a Flickr gallery of all my transit pictures taken over the past decade. Featured so far are mostly pictures taken throughout the Southeastern US from 2009 onward, but more uploads back from my Florida days to come!

Address is https://www.flickr.com/photos/transitfanunlimited/

Hope that you'll enjoy my vast treasure trove!

To those unfamiliar with how I name my transit pictures, here is a generic template of the filenames of most of them:

WWW-rXXX-YYY-Z

  • WWW is my abbreviation of the operating transit agency,
  • rXXX refers to the route number, where XXX can vary between 1 to 3 digits (1 digit for agencies operating up to route number 9 like Albany (Georgia), 2 digits for those operating up to route 99 like Corpus Christi (Texas) and 3 digits for those operating routes 100 or above like VIA Metropolitan Transit,  I name single digit routes with agencies of the 2nd category as r0x, and those with the last category as r00x.  Double-digit routes with agencies of the 3rd category as r0xx).  Route suffix letters may also be present.
  • Exceptions to the above route numbering schemes are agencies using a NYC-style alpha-numeric combo of route names like former system in Jacksonville, Florida or those using only route letters or names like Murfreesboro Rover in suburban Nashville.  I use the entire alpha-numeric combo in the former case , and either full or abbreviated route names in the latter case.
  • For WMATA Metrobus in greater Washington DC, I also add the state codes DC, MD and VA before the route numbers to distinguish between the DC, Maryland and Virginia division routes.  For DC routes without a letter prefix and all Virginia routes, I simply use the route number without the usual r prefix to avoid confusion with R-prefixed DC routes.
  • I skip the route number/name part for vehicles pictured whlie not in service.
  • YYY refers to the fleet number of the vehicle pictured.  It can vary between 1 to 5 digits like the bus side of Dallas DART.
  • Whenever there is more than 1 picture of the same vehicle/route combo, the Z part of the template refers to the individual picture number.

Hope that this explainer can help future viewers of my vast collection!
