Complaints and criticism:
MrGilpin The silver line always seems to take FOREVER @metrolosangeles
HecAndrade On the @metrolosangeles 550 and just spotted TWO roaches. Great!
igetrad yeah, it’s not like I had a choice RT @TransitTVLA: @igetrad Thanks for watching! Woohoo #Metrolosangeles
tykejohnson @metrolosangeles lol @tapreadycard . foolishly thought #metro was implementing a logical debit tap fare card. went to site, let down. #fail
DaftElf @metrolosangeles :: Can Blue Line drivers @ 7th/metro tell Red Line is unloading? Always leaving w/ empty seats & people running up stairs.
PBunches No word on why the 720 bus is on detour on either @metrolosangeles or on metro.net but you should expect delays.
HecAndrade Where’s the @metrolosangeles 550? Oh, nowhere to be found. Surprise.
tykejohnson @metrolosangeles “we’re 2 minutes ahead of schedule. Gotta wait.” Can we please all stop the lie that busses run on ANY timetables. #metro
Kudos and Compliments:
soulbarn HUZZAH! @metrolosangeles finally institutes cash-value TAP cards. Now, let’s get NY-style bulk ride discounts.
thelittlefella Hallelujah! @metrolosangeles: Ticket machines that sell TAP cards and stored value coming to Metro Rail station near you.
mysocalledtweet I have to find another excuse to take Metro often. I wanna tap, tap, TAP too!
the_anty Finally! RT @metrolosangeles: Ticket machines that sell TAP cards/stored value coming to Metro Rail station near you.
alloutattack @metrolosangeles Adding “stored value” to my TAP card was fast & strangely satisfying. However SV term is too clunky for a service roll out.
Observations in transit and a few good ideas, after the jump.
