About Oren's Transit Page »

Meet Oren

Welcome!  My name is Oren and I have been running this website since September 2000.  It is a labor of love that allows me to share my combined interests in transportation, traveling, and photography with the rest of the world.  It is largely modeled after and inspired by David Pirmann’s nycsubway.org page, among other similar sites.

I have lived at various times in the Washington, DC area, Ithaca, NY, and Jerusalem, Israel.  I also spent a college semester abroad in Rome, Italy.  The photo sections on this site provide a fairly good representation of where I have traveled in the world (the only country I have visited that is not featured here in any way is Jordan; Vatican City is represented in the Italy section).

I have been on most of the systems that you will find photographed on the website. Here is a list of all the list of transit systems that I have paid a fare to ride at least once:
