The art of transit

As I’ve written here before, I like to feature all kinds of transportation-themed photos in our daily “art of transit” feature. Since we often feature photos of trains and buses, I like to mix things up with images that also serve as reminders of how many of us get around. And that’s why I like the above image by Brad Kelly titled “A rainy evening in Anywhere USA.” As someone who has traveled a lot of miles by car around the country, this photo reminds me of so many commercials strips I’ve driven down — this is exactly what transportation looks like to many Americans.

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.
