The art of transit

photo by Jorge de Sena, via submission

I did a double take when I first opened this photo. It’s the real thing: Jorge writes that the transit agency in San Luis Obispo decided that to increase capacity it would go with a double-decker bus instead of longer, articulated buses which aren’t a great fit in an area with narrow, windy roads and not tons of room for bus stops. Kind of cool, eh?

  1. Way cool! I didn’t even know that double decker public buses were an option in California. I hope the MTA gets jealous and orders some… it’d be awesome to see these in West Hollywood as a consolation prize for the demise of the Pink Line.
