samTrans #1 - July 3, 2007

I commute to work on samTrans (the San Mateo County Transit District). Today on the way home, I noticed that the driver's id number, worn on a sleeve patch, was 1015. This was the first time I had seen a driver with a four digit number. samTrans started in 1976. Up until a few years ago, some drivers had two digit numbers. One of them told me that they were the original hires, from the transit companies that were joined to form samTrans. 1015 was a good driver.

I took the photo at the Linda Mar Park and Ride lot on 03-July-2007. It shows Gillig Phantom 35-foot bus number 710.
