CPTDB Details

I have been a part of the Canadian Public Transit Discussion Board since July 2013 and became a wiki editor several months after, in September 2014. I mainly contribute to the Coast Mountain Bus Company section of the Wiki, though on my spare time I contribute to several New Flyer VIN pages.

CPTDB Profile


I started taking transit photos in 2012, though my photos would not improve until late 2015/early 2016. I upload my photos onto my own Flickr.

Videos are rarely posted onto my YouTube Channel.

Below are the cameras used for taking pictures:
