Congratulations to NeoplanTastic for winning Photo of The Month for June 2024 with this stunning photo of MBTA’s now retired trackless trolley bus at Harvard Station.

This month’s theme was electric transit. All members of the discord server were invited to submit their photographs of any type of electric transit vehicle, and the winner would get their photo featured on the home page for a month.

Appropriate that the winner was of the MBTA Trackless Trolleys, as it’s been two years since MBTA pulled trackless trolley service out of Cambridge.

Congratulations yet again NeoplanTastic, and we look forward to everyone’s submissions next month!

About the author: Dash Verified icon 1

I have been with Virtual Transit Center 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.
