Big Blue Bus needs a twitter handle like @metrolosangeles . It feels odd to me now to not be able to chat w/ my bus service while riding it.

@metrolosangeles Thank you so much for changing the TAP system from 1wk/1month pass to debiting TAP account per ride. Makes so much sense!

@bikestation and @metrolosangeles conspiring to make me late. Can’t be a cheerleader for public transportation if its best features misfire.

@metrolosangeles 45 minute headway bus never showed. Either increase freq or make it show. I used Nextrip, it said it passed but was on time

RT @eddiethelazor: Bike rack on 3 @metrolosangeles buses came full. Starting to feel like I live in metro LA were to get a spot on the bike rack is mere luck.

@metrolosangeles Waiting for the 158 in the valley, which is at least 13 minutes late. This is unacceptable.

@metrolosangeles line 10/48 running 10+ minutes late. Perennial problem. Why can’t the bus run on time?

@metrolosangeles at pico/Rimpau station the benches need major cleaning! If drivers pull off early we stand until the next decides to show.

@metrolosangeles I believe authorities automatically think you’re a terrorist if you take any sort of picture around metro areas.

@metrolosangeles Local bus 236 was 13 minutes late. For most of the day it stop every hour. Most north-south lines in the Valley do. Why?

I should start posting pics of my view into people’s cars from the @metrolosangeles bus. Basically, everyone’s on the phone or petting a dog

@metrolosangeles wow! 2 drivers cut off the bus and almost get hit. It should be legal for buses to ram such stupid drivers.

Gotta love @metrolosangeles contracted services, bus 7168 panel above rear door missing screws! It isn’t major, but it’s all in the details.

RT @ieko1224: @metrolosangeles should put how-to guides for bike racks in those eye-level cubes where possible.

If only the riders of @metrolosangeles had the same “riders courtesy” as the riders of @SFBART, the world would be a happier place.

@metrolosangeles – You need to run all train lines later on Friday and Saturday nights so no one has to think about being a #DrunkDriver.
