- markvalli @metrolosangeles no, no, no! The purpose of metro should be to expand and efficiently run transit, not to help drivers by reducing gridlock

- letiff Low turnout @metrolosangeles red line. Some angelenos won’t ride public transit even if its free.
- LACityNerd Riding a fairly empty Metro Red line. Sad not more people took advantage of the free ride! @metrolosangeles
- bgrmosaic @metrolosangeles can’t wait till the light rail reaches LAX & LGB. LAX needs to be a priority after or along with phase 2 a the Expo line.
- adamlarue @metrolosangeles instead of glamorizing transit with cool pics you should work on maintaining your Blue Line better.

- ieko1224 @metrolosangeles operator of bus #9577 at 15:36 stopped bus so she could eat nuts instead of arrive at last stop early… Seriously?
