Recently spotted in transit

Either a bus veered way off course, or some sad souls have too much time on their hands.

Broken sign
At least the schedule’s still intact.

So much for the cool, new signal light at this freeway station.

Speaking of cool…

Relief for bus riders who want to know where the heck their bus is already:

Tracker at OTC
Time to install those updates!

This monitor at Overlake Transit Center shows Tracker’s location view for all the buses that stop there. The monitor is displayed through a window of one of the OTC buildings. Here’s an attempt at some context:

Tracker at OTC
That’s Bus Nerd in the reflection.

Love it! Maybe I’m dreaming too big, but I’d like to see something like this at every major bus stop.

Speaking of bus stops…

Printer in trash
E-waste at the 8 stop on Yesler & 23rd

Maybe they thought the sign said, “Bottles, cans, and printers only.” The saddest part: There was a monitor on top of a trash can at one of the later stops on the same ride. Just foul.

Speaking of fouls

Feet up on bus
Getting comfortable on the 27

Who needs a sofa when you can put your feet up on the bus? Not feelin’ this situation at all.

I am, however, feelin’ this situation:

Zune swap
Hipster-geeks swapping music on the 545
Zune swap
Wonder what song it was?

I’ve been saying that the bus would be a great place to test Zune’s wireless file sharing. No word on whether this particular test was successful.
