Go to my transit photos

I am a transit enthusiast and photographer.  My interests are mainly in buses and trains.  I also like to use my programming experience to analyze data feeds such as TransLink’s scheduled and real time data.

Transit enthusiasts are known by many other names, some more specialized than others, including: transit fans, bus fans, rail fans, rail spotters, airplane spotters, etc.

What transit enthusiasts/fans do

This varies from fan to fan, but here are some things transit fans might do:

  • Spotting, riding and/or photographing vehicles, especially ones that are new, about to be retired, or refurbished vehicles
  • Finding anomalies in the transit system, for example, buses with advertisement wraps, types of buses that you usually don’t find assigned to a route
  • Collecting memorabilia such as schedules, maps, pamphlets, or legally acquired items off decommissioned vehicles and equipment
  • Recording or searching up historical information about transit systems
