jonthelam The @metrolosangeles has done it again! Line 169 never showed and I’m late for my appointment. Now on another line. Submitting this for sure
Kate_Daniel Hello!? Anyone monitor @metrolosangeles on the weekends? Bus # 8304 missed us @ palos verdes/seacove. She totally ignored us. #badservice!
CarlessValGirl Thanks bus driver of the 183 for speeding so much that I missed my stop before the automated voice could call it out. #fail #metrolosangeles
thebusbench #metrolosangeles the busses that leave from Compton MLK are always ahead of schedule owing to 2stops being skipped because of construction.
sirinya47 uh, my fiance’s bus driver just fled her bus. I told him to tweet @metrolosangeles asap!
SurrealMystery On the 78 right now. If you get on the 78 today and see bus 7774, get off and wait. This driver is so rude! #metroLA @metrolosangeles
Observations in transit:
PeltFrelken Build it anyways: Westside subway may not ease much traffic http://bit.ly/9hLkh1 #metrolosangeles
NeelSodha So cool to see the Expo Line progress in west LA. Can’t wait to ride the train to the westside next year! #expoline #metrolosangeles
faboomama Uh, @metrolosangeles, it’ll cost $29 for my family of 4 to take the train to #lacountyfair? Parking is only $10. Valet is $25. #doingitwrong
@faboomama, you’re right, a Metrolink ride (not Metro) to the L.A. County Fair on the weekend is $29 round trip for a family of four when taking advantage of Metrolink’s Friends and Family 4-Pack. True, that’s more expensive than $10 for parking, but remember: there are many other costs to driving than just parking expenses (gas, wear and tear, insurance, stress, etc). Of course, in the end, the choice is yours – transit is just another mobility option.
Out and about:
SimonOh Taking @MetrolinkOC and @metrolosangeles to LA this Sunday to visit @theslawdogs again and go study at a library in Pasadena! Hooray!

ginnycase In great YGG tradition… I tried the #metrolosangeles iPhone app and I liked it. (it’s a good 1.0, but can I get some real-time bus info)

Feedback on The Source:
irezumimuzan the transit riders survey put out by #metrolosangeles is far too long-winded and repetitive… I got bored after 4 questions…
