I thought I'd share some photos of San Fancisco and the surrounding area I uploaded to Flickr. I'll be adding more as time permits and will post them here. I went in the summer of 2005 to visit family and see the city.

This is where I satyed at the corner of Van Ness...
Quite pleased to see this display put up in the George Brown School of Design by Dominion Modern. It highlights David Vereschagin's exploration and revival of the font "Toronto Subway". What caught my attention was the clever recreation of a Vitrolite wall with card and string.
Behind the Scenes at the TTC
I'd like to share some photos of parts of the TTC not ordinarily seen by the public. Thanks to the TTC Tours (a great PR move in my opinion) anyone can view them.
The first set of photos are of the McCowan complex. It was built in 1983 and houses all the...
Strathcona County Transit in Alberta will begin running a double decker demo on their commuter service between Edmonton and Sherwood Park beginning mid-September. They will be gauging its performance, passenger opinion, and operator opinion over a year.
Strathcona already uses articulated...
The famous ascending three note tone, "dou dou dou", which has become synonymous with the Montreal Metro is being used as the new door chime, followed by an announcement. The "dou dou dou" originates from the sound of the acceleration of the MR-73 stock and was likely popularized through the...
Anyone else on here fond of building interiors, perhaps more so than exteriors? I find I'm that way and I find I'm particularly fond of interiors from the 1970s and 1980s. I'm also facinated at how interiors change during renovations/refurbishments. I've been taking photos of interiors I've...
I know I've read on here that some believe improvements can made to GO's scheduals and maps. This is your chance to have your say through an online survey found here. The survey asks some detailed questions about what you think of all forms of schedual information including availability and...
From member Orion 7029 on the CPTDB:

A person from Toronto is known as a Torontonian, but there are some other other places that I wonder what their citizens are known as. What do you call someone from: Pickering, Vaughan, Markham, Belleville, Windsor, Welland, Coboug, Tecumseh
Today is the premier of CP24's new show with host Adam Giambrone broadcast live from a runing TTC streetcar 8pm to 9pm. Viewers can phone, email, tweet, or board the streetcar to contact the show.
It's an interesting concept, and looks good so far.
Any one interested in seeing the behind the scenes of the TTC should keep an eye on this page:
The recent one and up-comming one sold out quick. I managed to get a spot on the first one, and when I went to post the link here a bit later, the page was taken down.
Megabus, the original $1 bus, is set to have it's official launch tomorrow at 100 King St. W. Link
Megabus, which started in the UK, is a low cost inter-city bus service from Stagecoach Group. Depending on how early you purchase your ticket via the internet, your trip can be as low as $1 plus...
I guess inspired by the great films thread: what films have you found to be horrible or subpar?
Some off the top of my head:
Clown at Midnight (1998)
I Know Who Killed Me (2007)
Vantage Point (2008)
