New Website!

Welcome to the new Virtual Transportation Center!

As you may know, this site is brand new. It is indeed the replacement of the original VTC website at http://w11.zetaboards.com/bacon/

With this post, I will answer several questions

What is the point of the switch?

The original site was not meant to be as big as it had gotten. However, since more and more users joined. The site was plagued by the inability to expand. Users were basically discouraged from using the site to its full potential. It could be nothing more than a forum. This site, however, is more socially engaging with a photo gallery, customizable profiles, social login, arcade, and so much more!!!

What about the old site and posts?

Unfortunately, all the original posts on the Zetaboards site are gone. HOWEVER, all the content will be archived, and all mods and addons will be migrated over. So with that in mind, I will do the best I can to make sure the transition rolls over smoothly.

Will I need a New Account?

Yes, however you can register with a social media account on this site. Normal registration to the site should be easy to use for all.

What exactly is so great about this website that requires this change?

Honestly? The fact that site changes are actually possible. The fact that there’s so much more potential freedom on the site. The fact that members are able to register with social media accounts. Said members can actually customize their profiles, actually have a one-on-one experience with other members, the list goes on. Then the MAIN benefit is that this site, unlike the other one, is that it’s less likely to be down due to server problems for 3 days straight.

What is planned for the future?

First more games in the arcade! Right now 3 is not enough! We intend on adding a downloads system similar to the one on Aussiex and migrating more posts over from the ZetaBoards site. Stay tuned…

About the author: DashTransit

I have been with Virtual Transportation Cente since it's conception as the "Dash Forums" back in 2008. Since then, I have been writing and doing YouTube side by side, focusing both on Transportation and Gaming. Most of my knowledge comes from SEPTA as I lived in Philadelphia for most of my life. As of 2021, I am on YouTube as DashTransit, Dash5155, and TheDashOfficial.

As for the name DashTransit itself, it actually stems from my YouTube channel.

DashTransit was originally called "njt5329" and the channel was just clips of buses. Mostly SEPTA and NJT. A Fujifilm Finepix was used in this era.

Starting in July 2011, the Canon SX130IS camera became the camera of the channel, bringing HD documentary-style videos much like my buddy (trainman1971) did for DVD for many years past. This is when the channel became known as "Transit Action Series"

In May 2012, the original Canon SX130IS retired, and then all videos were recorded off a mobile phone until eventually uploaded proved too difficult due to hardships IRL

Starting in 2017, I used a Canon SX200IS from Bastranz to reboot the channel that otherwise was dead for a whole year prior.

Between April 19th, 2019, and January 21st, 2021, all videos were recorded by a Canon SX710 HS camera. The channel was renamed DashTransit 4/19/19.
