Mass Transit Resume

Alexandria, VA

(c) 2006 C. Walton

I have been riding transit since I was 5 years old, since 14 years old by myself.  From Court Square to Coney Island, from Wakefield to Williamsburg, there isn’t a part of New York City that I haven’t been to either on subways or buses at least once.  There may be a little corner of the city I haven’t seen up close, but I may have passed by a neighborhood on a nearby route.  I started traveling alone to other cities starting from about 2000 with my first trip to Philadelphia, but my first visit to another city was Richmond, VA, and Washington, DC back in 1996.

With that said, here is a list of bus systems, rail systems, and transportation networks I have ridden or photographed, or both:
