To be completely unoriginal but honest, my favorite and most frequent transit trek is to take Caltrain up to SF to ride around the city on my bike. I did this 8 or 10 times during the last year. Once I rode in Critical Mass. Two or three times I rode a big loop up the Embarcadero, over to Fort Mason, up to the Palace of Fine Arts, down to Great Highway, through the Park, and back to Caltrain. Several times I took Caltrain one way and then biked back to Mountain View. Caltrain's bike car is a wonderful social space in addition to being useful transportation. The bike car is where I met my current boyfriend!

Loved the reminder to get on public transit to go out local sightseeing / doing. My town, Thunder Bay, Ontario, Canada, is car culture. The bus takes forever. I can't imagine where I could go with public transit without taking half the time to get there. But maybe that's the point. The getting.
