  1. Everyday almost it seems that the Blue Line is always breaking down somewhere. It may be the oldest line and outdoors but for goodness sake, how many breakdowns can those people take?

  2. We really need to do something about upgrading the Blue Line. This is what happens when you build something for cheap.

  3. The rest of the world is able to run their oldest lines on time every time. Go look at Japan for example where they’ve been running trains and subways since the 1900s.

    What is that they are doing right and what is it that we’re doing wrong?

    C’mon Metro, it’s your job to get things in order. What are we paying you guys for? Figure a solution to this mess now!

  4. Communication at its best…a 10 AM posting is the latest info on here regarding a line that services thousands? Seriously?! Where are you Metro?

  5. WHY IS THE BLUE LINE ALWAYS DELAYED???????????? I WILL NEVER TAKE THE BLUE LINE AGAIN! I’LL TAKE THE SILVER LINE INSTEAD!
