Recommended Posts

Submit any photos you'd like to have featured on the main page of the CPTDB and CPTDB Wiki.

We're looking for the best and most interesting transit photographs.

Simply post your picture as a reply in this thread. Or, if you've already uploaded your photo to the wiki, leave a link to that page. Please include a few words about your photo to help us with a description should we choose your picture. :)

A few notes:

  • all members are welcome to post
  • we might PM you to get the original image file if your picture is chosen (the forum scales down images)
  • please limit your submissions to 1-2 good quality photos per week
  • photos must be your own
  • we're happy to credit you, but if you don't want your name on the main page, we're also happy to leave it out
  • after their week on the main page, photos are moved to the archive

Dare I suggest that potential contributers are limited to submitting 1 photo per week?

Perhaps even require an actual caption which explains what/where/when/why is going on that makes the image something that would fit what Tallis said at the start: "We're looking for the best and most interesting transit photographs.

Nice New Orleans pics too TimmyC62!

The onus is on the user to make the case for why their photo should be featured, so yes, a description would be helpful.

We'd also like people to keep in mind the photograph quality standards we have. This not meant to discourage anyone, but a couple of the photos that have been submitted do not meet these guidelines. And we should note, these are just guidelines. We do not mean to say every photo has to be a 3/4 view so-called "roster shot".

The Detroit Department of Transportation's first 40-foot low-floor buses, a fleet of 60 New Flyer D40LF buses, were purchased in 2003. A small number of these buses, numbered in the 3900 series, continue to operate into 2017.

I just wanted to say thanks to everyone who has contributed their photographs so far! Some really nice shots have been posted.

Going through only one picture a week, it might take a little while for your photo to be featured, but if we like your picture we'll definitely get to it. We're not necessarily going through the thread in terms of first come first serve, either.

I've updated the original post in this thread to include a few notes and help clarify the process.

Spruce Grove Transit 6900 approaching the flyer-over from 68 Ave within the South Campus lands to Fox Drive. Formerly, this was a bus only road, but, seems to have been opened up to all traffic now. Spruce Grove XD40's hold down all service on the 562 now, and can be see on the 560 as well.
