The art of transit

photo by svenwerk, via Flickr

I like the shapes in this photo — the geometry is pleasing to the eye. Go ahead and take a guess where the photo was taken — answer is after the jump. Hint: it’s within 15 degrees of latitude of the equator. Second hint: it’s a city with a bus system that some consider one of the best in the world.

To submit a photo for the Art of Transit, post it to Metro’s Flickr group, email it to or Tweet it to @metrolosangeles with an #artoftransit hashtag. Many of the photos we’ve featured can be seen in these galleries on Flickr.

The photo was taken in Bogata, Columbia, which is just north of the equator.

  2. yeah, the Transmilenio is fantastic. The buses are three-segment. Think of a bendy-bendy-bus. It’s also where the ciclovia came from, which journalists seem to think they (frequently) independently discover. sigh.
