SimonOh @metrolosangeles Transit TV onboard buses are very annoying.
ghostgirl13 Sometimes I really do hate @metrolosangeles. Trains are running late & now the rapid bus is 10 minutes late.
Dianasauries Sometimes I want to stop using @metrolosangeles when they can’t keep stations w/a basic level of sanitation. Gross. #notworthit #gettingsick.
kapope @metrolosangeles, I wish the 108 ran more regularly in the morning (from Marina).
afrikantraveler @metrolosangeles is killing me right bow. 1 bus in 30 min that was stuffed and unboardable. No chance of getting to class in time now.
gbrey @metrolosangeles unhappy 733 w/plenty standing rm passed us on Fairfax/Venice. Ever heard of telling folks to move 2 the back 2 make room?!
trekntravel @metrolosangeles thank you for the redline alert tonight as it did more to explain problem than your station monitors.

hnjohnso Back from @CicLAvia. It was awesome! Macho (my dog) and I walked from @macarthurparkLA to Hollenbeck Park and took @metrolosangeles back.
hnjohnso Also @metrolosangeles should have had more cars on the Gold Line for @ciclavia. It was super packed.
SimonOh Briefly spoke with a nice couple onboard a @metrolosangeles Gold Line train, both coming back from #cicLAvia. I need to learn to ride soon.
chuljin ‘don’t crowd!’ announcement at gold line stations, directed explicitly at cyclists. glad to see #cyclavia has @metrolosangeles‘ ‘support’.

Observations in transit:
tykejohnson Gotta love when #metrolosangeles 1st timers get a lunatic screamer to accost the bus and clear everyone off. Hope they give it another try.
RecessionistaLA A forthcoming column to our premiere @RecessionistaLA website/blog will be one on discovering LA by @MetroLosAngeles. Go Green, Go Metro!
Waltarrrrr You know you ride @metrolosangeles a lot when the day you’re driving around LA, see familiar buses and want to ditch the car and jump on.
