A handy guide to Bay Area transit operators:
@porsupah I'm the one on the bottom left
@porsupah tag yourself, I'm definitely MUNI
@porsupah bless you for this very niche meme
@aparrish I am fondly remembering Berkeley now, and maybe you are too? Like, fond annoyance?
@brainwane you never really get over your first love, and the first public transit system I ever really loved was AC Transit. despite all its shortcomings. being 18 and taking the bus that goes over the bay bridge into sf = kinda magic still
@aparrish I'm remembering a particular AC Transit bus that I called magical because it hit both Vik's Chaat House and the place Dan worked. (OMG I just looked Dan up and he's an SRE manager at Google now. Of course he is?!)
@aparrish why did I look at my ex's LinkedIn.
ok anyway, the first (only?) time I was recognized in public as a newspaper columnist was on BART, so if nothing else that would make me fond of it
ALSO do you remember https://www.harihareswara.net/sumana/2009/03/04/0 ? I heard that his coworkers printed it out and framed it for him!!
@brainwane I didn't remember that, no, but it's lovely!

@porsupah SF Bay Ferry:
