Just the Forums, Not the Whole Site!

Okay over the past couple of days, after reading this article, many site visitors were under the impression that the site was closing. I’m just here to say that is not the case. Virtual Transportation Center will be here for years to come. The only part of this website that will be closing will be the forums, which have already been moved to a sub-folder of the site.

The reason why people got confused is that they only read the headline and not the whole article. The article went into great detail explaining that the site will stay around and the forums are being replaced with something else. So if people read the article, they wouldn’t have been confused. That said, if you read to this point in the article, go back to whatever source you found this from (be it Facebook, Discord, or Twitter) and just comment saying that “DashTransit confirmed that the whole site is closing” under the original post. Don’t explain yourself afterward. I just want to see how many people actually read up to this point.

Thank you and have a nice day!

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.
