Streetcars, buses and trolleys of the former USSR. An extensive collection of pictures of public transportation from the Baltic to Siberia. Here's a babelfish translation of the index page. (via The Daily Czech)

A Finn told me that the trams of Tallinn are Finnish-made and second-hand. All I know is that they're nearly exactly the same as the trams on the streets of Helsinki.

Really cool find, Ljubljana!

Nice. I've heard on good authority that these contraptions move at about the same speed as Dutch Elm disease.

Thanks, Ljubljana.

Awesome link! Thank you! I'll be spending a lot of time staring at these. This unfortunately doesn't have buses, or I would show you the kind that I used for at least half of my elementary school career.

(well, actually, you can see it on the left here. Only our bus was orange and, yes, there was only one bus on the route. It was at least 30 years old.)
