Via Streetsblog Los Angeles:

UCLA researchers at their Institute of Transportation Studies are looking for volunteers to help with one of their research projects by creating a photo essay of their travels on transit. The thought is that by analyzing what people choose to highlight in their photographs, they will get a better idea of how the people who ride transit view transit.

I’m really, really hoping they pick me. Above is one my favorite views from the transit trip I take to Cal Poly Pomona several days a week for grad school classes.

After you fill out UCLA’s interest form, please feel free to link to your favorite transit trip views in the comments of this post. (FYI: UCLA is focusing on Los Angeles region trips, but we’d love to see your favorite transit trip views no matter where you live.)

    Hey Nate!
    Actually, it’s hard to decide upon my favorite transit trips (I love all of them, even the ones in which the bus is late, the bus is smelly, the bus driver is gnarly, etc). But if I had to choose one, it’d be the trip I took from my parents’ in the Valley to reach USC: three buses + the train. The pictures are in a Facebook album, which should be viewable even without being FB friends with me: http://www.facebook.com/stritipeskul#!/album.php?aid=2024211&id=5901076&op=6
