CarlessValGirl FYI, #metrolosangeles the time board @ Balboa Station has been stuck at 20 mins for the last 5 mins. The metro liner actually just arrived.
PBunches @metrolosangeles Can you fix the trip planner on the mobile site soon?! It’s a serious pain in the you-know-what not being able to use it!
AlaiaWilliams @metrolosangeles new mobile site is no good. Doesn’t give multiple options.
TheDudeAbides If you have kidney stones I recommend taking @metrolosangeles 720 bus down Wilshire. Potholes = shaky bus #fixourstreetstonyv
jonrobaina Hey @metrolosangeles, once again, #slapyourself
sirinya47 Having NO transit karma tonight. Where is the @metrolosangeles 720? Just watch, 5 will come bunched up together.
wiyum Dear MTA Line 704 bus driver: chewing on flosspiks while driving is unhygienic, in very poor taste. Love, devoted rider. #metrolosangeles
RobertMoranLA Lol At times #metrolosangeles decision process borders on stupid. RT @LAist Color Me Expo: New Rail Line is Not ‘Aqua’ http://t.co/Q8542bY
Juan_Matute Why does @metrolosangeles CEO Art Leahy hate UCLA so much? Will this affect the planning for the @WestsideSubway or #WilshireBRT?
RedEbbm Turn styles for the gold at sierra madre but not union? How is this system going to work @metrolosangeles?
Waltarrrrr Pro tip: @MetroLosAngeles bus service north of Colorado Blvd. in Pasadena is the least-reliable of the entire system. I keep forgetting this
Kudos and compliments:
sebastian_santo @metrolosangeles I’m in line #20 going east on Wilshire and just has to say that the driver on bus #6502 is THE BEST PERSON EVER! Props!
SimonOh Bus bridge for @metrolosangeles Blue Line. Keep up the good work, Expo Line construction crew! http://4sq.com/1wtsQR
NeelSodha I love having a monthly EZ Transit Pass with a P1 express sticker! #metrolosangeles
amysmythe This is why I’m glad I ride @metrolosangeles http://yfrog.com/15wqrhj
AnarchyGarden My husband loves riding @metrolosangeles for that same reason! (@amysmythe)
A few good ideas and some observations in transit, after the jump.
Waltarrrrr If I actually *HAD* to go to the #LAautoshow I’d probably choose the @metrolosangeles 81 Bus. -more convenient than driving.
NeelSodha How can you not be supportive of bus only lanes in Condo Canyon? http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Wge79ln6peE #metrola #metrolosangeles #mta
meekadjustments @sirinya47 @metrolosangeles What we need is a bus-only lane to make travel times more reliable and waits shorter. Oh wait, that’s happening!
USCSPPD Visiting campus? Why not take @metrolosangeles? List of bus routes servicing #USC on the SPPD Facebook page: http://ht.ly/3c3qa
Observations in transit:
Tykejohnson @metrolosangeles Ill be monitoring the amount of babes taking metro to prove my “the more babes the better ” theory. #babesonmetro
Tykejohnson @metrolosangeles 4 babes on the #704 heading west. One with a bike. #babesonmetro
tykejohnson @metrolosangeles only 1 babe today, but she was foreign so it’s kind of cheating. of course a Parisian is going to take metro. #babesonmetro
SimonOh Best kept secret found only on @metrolosangeles Blue Line trains: power outlets underneath some seats aboard trains to charge phones
RobertMoranLA It seems that for some reason #metrolosangeles and Foothill Transit busses are busier on Sundays, Tuesdays and Thursdays than on other days.
