Justin (@BJustin) and I must be on the same wavelength today! Great #Transit minds MUST think alike ;-)
I sat down to write this post this morning thinking about all of the cool things to celebrate this week about transit. I started pulling together all of the celebrations, events and news stories that have happened this week and that are happening this month:
I needed to find a link I came across about celebrations this week, so I went to twitter. Right there on my #TransitThursday hashtag list were Justin’s tweets:
GREAT #TRANSIT MINDS THINK ALIKE!!!
There is really just much to celebrate in the transit world this week! Justin is right!!! While totally awesome transit and transportation-related events are happening this week and this month, we should celebrate the joy and positive impact of transportation everywhere…and not just #TransitThursday!
So for today’s topic:
#TransitThursday - Tell us what’s going on in YOUR community to celebrate #Transit! Share the news, the videos, the events, the announcements, the birthdays, the meetups, the pictures…whatever! Just don’t forget the hashtag #TransitThursday otherwise we can’t hear you!
Special thanks to @BJustin for inspiring today’s #TransitThursday topic!
Some say art imitates life. Nothing could be more true than on the silver screen!
Movies and TV shows mirror the familiar in our lives: sights and sounds, iconic buildings, and yes..even TRANSIT!
Why transit? Transit draws us closer into the stories and plot lines; it gives us something we can relate to: how we get to where we are going.
Transit is so engrained in our culture that endless examples exist in books, movies & TV.
So today we ask:
What is your favorite example of transit in movies or on TV? Bonus points if you share a vid clip. Super, duper, gold star transit geek bonus points if you can identify any inaccuracies in the movie/TV show’s transit reference (e.g. wrong train, city, transit system, train lines serving the transit stop, etc.)
#TransitThursday shout out to @geoff_green in Chapel Hill, NC who came up with this week’s #transitThursday topic idea: “transit in media, ie movies (Pelham 1-2-3), tv, even books.”
