Kythera And the “where the heck is the 108?” dance begins… #metrolosangeles
OMZS187 @metrolosangeles y r buses running & not picking up on Vermont Ave
Kythera Uh oh… Waiting on the 232 at the LAX bus center. No 232 waiting in sight. This does not bode well… >.> #metrolosangeles
PeltFrelken @metrolosangeles Gotta say, very difficult for tourists to buy a TAP Card #metrolosangeles
You may notice this next tweet is well over 140 characters – @RobertMoran used a Twitter extender for this particular rant:
@Robert Moran Dear @metrolosangeles a little notification and better organization when buses are being detoured so riders won’t have to be the one alert you that your busses are being rerouted and your clueless service reps won’t suggest that we flag down the busses on their alternative routes like a taxi cab! Sincerely a very aggravated, Robert Moran
metsfaninCA @metrolosangeles other than the obligatory crazies…I really enjoyed myself riding this weekend. Nice to not be harassed taking photos!
PeltFrelken @metrolosangeles Gotta say, I’m impressed w/ the morning rush hour Red Line-to-Wilshire Rapid speed & efficiency. #metrolosangeles
