南加州最酷的巴士司機

163女性网These 1980s Employee-of-the-Month photos are a tribute to blue collar Angelenos

SCRTD Operator of the Month, Ralph Patterson. 7/17/1987.

Think of Los Angeles, you think of cars, right? But what about buses? What about the public service, the schedule of transit coursing (or crawling) along L.A.’s car-thronged arteries, from Sunset Boulevard to Imperial Highway, from Foothill Boulevard to the PCH. These bus-driver portraits cast municipal transport in a starring role alongside Tinseltown’s Cadillacs, Beemers, and soft-top Corvettes.

Sporting perms, sideburns and sunglasses, some of these operators might look like extras from Boogie Nights or Inherent Vice. But they are, in fact, just regular, working men and women. They’re exemplary too; each was the recipient of the Operator Of The Month award from their employer, the Southern California Rapid Transit Department (RTD).

Dressed to impress (as much as one can in scratchy uniform), these drivers photographed in the office and behind the wheel are a welcome, if unusual, counterpoint to a city whose folklore is based on glitz, glamour, and celebrity fetishism.

SCRTD Operator of the Month, Jack Bailey. 4/18/1988.

The RTD was created in 1964 and served Los Angeles, Orange, Riverside, and San Bernardino counties (it later became the Los Angeles County Metropolitan Transportation Authority, or LAMTA). It wasn’t a bad place to work. Drivers got free rides anywhere in greater L.A.; uniquely, RTD offered free rides to family members and children of all employees too. No wonder they’re smiling.

来自163woman.comThese photos are from the Dorothy Peyton Gray Transportation Library and Archiveat LACMTA, which is the largest transit operator research collection in the United States. Cementing departmental pride and projecting a human face was necessary for RTD at the time, thanks to the massive agency’s reputation for throwing its weight around. (In one turf war with Long Beach Transit, RTD refused to honor the cross-town tickets which traversed both companies’ turfs.)

Looking over these photos, one wonders which routes the men and women drove. What did they see and who did they serve? Of course, any rose-tinted view of SoCal public transit is kept in check by the fact that L.A., despite much effort and hand-wringing, hasn’t managed to achieve a robust public transit system. Are these portraits the forgotten past of a generally disparaging present? Are bus drivers still this classy? Or is it just nostalgia that bestows nobility? Will Uber drivers ever achieve such cool?

  • 冬天裤子这样穿,女人味简直爆表,难怪回头率这么高!

    人人都有的牛仔裤,如果只是搭配小白鞋,难免有些烂大街。和这4双鞋搭配后,报姐果断抛弃了小白鞋,毕竟“撞鞋不可怕,谁丑谁尴尬”。这样搭配起来不知道要比小白鞋美多少!牛仔裤+尖头鞋每天敲黑板都在说,要想显瘦,就得穿尖头鞋。报姐认为尖头鞋也是最具有女人味的一款鞋子。搭配牛仔裤,分分钟就能妩媚动人。红色高跟鞋更加抢眼时髦,九分牛仔裤和尖头鞋的搭配准没错。冬季时髦穿搭,怎么能少的了皮草?皮草不仅是洋气上档次的选择,还能增加个人气质,现代社会,化妆是社交礼仪,穿的好一些也是自信的表现,还可以选择高跟款式的尖
