On paper, Anaheim's $250-million transportation center is a palace for mobility: Cavernous interlocking stations with arching roofs of glass serving tens of thousands of people a day. Metrolink, Amtrak, a maglev train to Las Vegas, the state's high-speed rail project, and the county's CenterLine system are shown converging as if all tracks lead to Anaheim. Designed like a giant layer cake, the station will allow trains to come and go from tiers.

It's nothing that Ralph Kramden would have recognized as a bus station. On the other hand, nobody has ever seen a bus station quite like the structure going up on the north side of Pacific View Mall. After four years of planning and occasionally vigorous opposition, Ventura will open a 36-foot-tall, multicolored sculpture featuring timetables, benches, restrooms, loading bays and drinking fountains.

Fernando Gamboa Rosas started his new job as Mexican consul in Ventura County last week, and already he plans changes for his Oxnard-based office. By July, Gamboa Rosas expects to relocate the consulate to a larger building that's more visible, handicapped accessible and able to handle a recent surge of immigrants seeking Mexican passports. He also wants to upgrade equipment and hire at least five additional employees to reduce the amount of time it takes to issue a passport.

A bomb exploded at a busy bus station in Algeria's capital, Algiers, wounding 29 people, officials said. The incident raised fears of an upsurge of violence by Islamic rebels during the Muslim holy month of Ramadan, which began last week. No one immediately claimed responsibility for the blast at Tafourah, where hundreds of college students wait every day for buses.

Officials at a Greyhound bus station found powerful military explosives and 1,000 feet of detonation cord in a suitcase here Friday, but police said there was no immediate indication that the cache was connected to the Sept. 11 attacks. Police officials said there were five ounces of C4 explosive, about the size of a bar of soap, inside the suitcase. But there was no threat of explosion because no detonation cap was attached to the plastic explosive, they said.

When Leticia Morales needed to get to Mexico quickly, her first stop was the Mexican Consulate's Oxnard office in the city's bus station. The 22-year-old Santa Barbara homemaker wanted to visit her ailing grandmother. But she couldn't cross the border unless she had an official ID card, something she had never obtained during her five years in the United States. "I need this card to go back to my country," Morales said.
