cookiebandit Great, 720 bus breaks down at la cienega. What a way to start a morning. @metrolosangeles
emiglio I feel like @metrolosangeles decided to cut the 780, 750, and 714 bus lines without actually ever riding them. Never seen an empty one.
JoeQuality @metrolosangeles When will RapidBus.net work again? All routes have been “unavailable” for months.
cristal19 In the 4.1 miles from La Brea 2 Vermont, I passed SEVEN buses on Wilshire. WHY!?! It was 2:30, not rush hr @metrolosangeles #needadamnsubway
alexdecordoba Bus 9051 nearly hit me on Sunset, didn’t use mirrors or signal when pulling into traffic. #BikeLA @bikemetrp @metrolosangeles
kneel28 Boo all @metrolosangeles board members for caving to NIMBYs and voting to exclude Condo Canyon from #WilshireBRT
ZachBehrens Just saw a @metrolosangeles red line train leave 2 minutes earlier than scheduled, based both on my phone and clocks on station screens.
superjanna This Sunday will bring maybe the most depressing biannual Metro changeover EVER. R.I.P. Line 920 & Weekend 780 :’( @metrolosangeles
PBunches And guess what @metrolosangeles… Apparently Google Transit file is too big to load onto my mobile browser. Can you fix your trip planner?
