After the jump, yesterday’s subway problems make for an extra long list of #MetroFail tweets.

@metrolosangeles Wow, Metro is absolutely ridiculous. I just missed my Metrolink due to your “emergency repair”. What a joke. #fail

@metrolosangeles Minor delays, really? Try 1.5 hours delay for my elderly mom – no employees knew any info about shuttles, delays. Fail.

It’s sad that @metrolosangeles buses are now filled with loud televisions. It used to be a great time to relax & look out the window.

Lots of people on the train this AM. Standing room only on #metrolosangeles SB line. I feel like an East Coast commuter without galoshes!

What would it take for the 236 to run every 20-30 minutes instead of every hour? #metrolosangeles

  1. I have to agree with “bengutz” in #MetroFail above. Those loud televisions with inane videos and dumb “news” are terribly annoying on the bus. They’re far more perturbing than people gabbing on their cell phones, talking to each other loudly, and even babies crying.
    PLEASE METRO TURN THEM OFF! Or at the very least provide content that doesn’t have any sound!
    Just show a map with real time location of the bus and maybe a silent weather forecast.
    Can we please have some quiet and dignity back on the bus?

  2. I agree with “bengutz” and JT. The loud TVs aboard buses are pretty annoying and very unwelcome. At least the content has gotten better under the new producer, but I still certainly don’t like being disturbed. Should be video-only IMO (no audio).
