|Heroes walk amongst us|

It's a beautiful day in Seattle today so this morning I went for a long walk in my neighborhood of Ballard, running a few errands and taking in the sun. I was on the main drag of Market St. when I spotted someone curious across the street, and luckily I had my camera on me:
I had to cross the street to get a better look; could Ballard really have it's own superhero?
What could it all mean?!? What powers does he have? He obviously can't fly; if he could, he'd been surfing the net from a rooftop somehwere rather than while waiting for a bus.
I didn't have the nerve to approach him and ask for his story; I mean, he could be a supervillain for all I know. What could the "T" stand for? "T-Mobile Man"? I don't think that's their logo. "Thirtysomething Man"? He looks more like he's in his 40s to me. "Takin' a Bus Man"? "Transit Man"? If anyone has any information it would be appreciated.
UPDATE: Holy crap. He actually is named "Transit Man." Tip o' the Flog to my good pal and fellow Ballardite Jeremy Eaton.
