Feature Photo Submissions


Recommended Posts

I think the cover photo of next week should commemorate the last bus(es) inside the Downtown Seattle Transit Tunnel.

Friday, March 22nd, marked the last day for buses in the  Downtown Seattle Transit Tunnel. This was done to accommodate future Link LRT extension as well as redevelopment around the former site of Convention Place Station.

Seen here is Pioneer Square Station during the evening rush of August 7, 2016.

LACMTA 11038 at Los Cerritos Center, serving line 130 on January 15th, 2019. LA Metro is among the last American transit agencies to operate the Orion VI in regular service; these vehicles are contracted to MV Transportation for use on lines 125, 128, 130, 205, and 232. Metro's Orions have been plagued with the little to no maintenance work for most of their entire service lives, effectively making these buses guaranteed a risk of engine fire.

Unit 11034 has been recently involved in an engine fire yesterday morning, after 11062 had a similar fate not too long ago; as a result, these Orion VI buses are about to be replaced very soon by new ENC Axess buses.

I'm guessing a personal message with an admin.
