Taking Long Beach Transit for the first time,

Currently I live in Compton.

Up to 2 months ago, I lived in the San Fernando Valley, but due to my job assignment with my temp agency ended, I had to moved back down here. I am still seeking employment and in the mean time I will be collecting Unemployment benefits until then.

That being said. I took a trip today to the Long Beach Transit headquarters for a job application as a coach operator.

I have previously been on other municipal bus lines within the county for example, Culver City, Gardena, Torrance, Santa Monica and Foothill but had never been on the Long Beach system, until now.

So I get the 205 going South to the Artesia Blue Line Station where I transfer to the Blue Line and get off @ Anaheim Station. There, I get the Long Beach Line 46 to the LBT Administrative offices.

One thing I noticed is that LBT has next bus information at some of the bus stops, pretty much the same that MTA has on the Orange Line but I have a feeling theirs is more accurate.

Another thing I noticed once inside the bus is that drivers have the option of wearing the standard issued uniform or they can use what look like a Hawaiian shirt.

The standard fee is .90 cents as opposed to the $1.25 for MTA.

Other than those things there was nothing unusual or note worthy except for some of the pictures I took along the way.
