Your TN Transportation and Infrastructure Holiday Gift Guide: California Edition

Wednesday, December 21, 2011 - 11:44 AM

New York is far from the only place where transportation can be turned into gift-giving gold. Looking for a locally harvested MUNI transfer button? A belt made out of bicycle tires? A Decolonized Area Rapid Transit t-shirt? Look no further than the Bay Area.

TN contributor Julie Caine of KALW saw these bangles at Oaklandish, a shop in Oakland.

It's where you can also purchase t-shirts inspired by the BART map....

...and note cards of the Bay Bridge:

Go ahead and cross that bridge into San Francisco, where a Sunset District crafter sells pro-transit pins:

These pins source their materials locally.

The San Francisco Arts Commission crowdsourced a t-shirt that renames BART stops after local activists and revolutionary heroes. The artist behind it, Kenji Liu, calls it DART - or "Decolonized Area Rapid Transit."

Want to make sure guests know where to park their bikes? FluffyCo has you covered.

And local store Urban Bazaar can make sure that your pants stay up while riding, via a belt made out of old bicycle tires:

It's been clinically proven that owning any one of these items can help combat rumors that you're not Berkeley enough.
