StephanieLantry @metrolosangeles I’m not sure, but I don’t think it’s supposed to be a 45 minute wait for the 705.
MichaelAffeldt @metrolosangeles :: At Wilshire/Vermont, the screen says 7:08, but the 7:09 train has already come and gone. Not cool. What’s the deal?
bighandsome Its 6pm on a weekyday, @metrolosangeles – why am I waiting over 20 mins for a bus on line 14?
Kythera Not a good transit day. >.> #metrolosangeles
GaryRidesBikes SM Blvd and vermont 704 west stop overflowing trash as usual. #metrolosangeles
rebelrina Bus ten minutes late this morning. Fail, @metrolosangeles.
CarlessValGirlI wonder if #metrolosangeles bus drivers realize that arriving late and driving slowly causes patrons to miss connecting buses.
CarlessValGirl A 40min+ wait on a Saturday for an E/W bus on a busy corner. Multiple buses in either direction have passed. Still waiting. #metrolosangeles
rebelrina The bus was only two minutes late today, which still counts as on time. Thank you, @metrolosangeles. Every day, please.

plusMETRO also #metrolosangeles should have Tokyo-esqe leaving sounds where it rings just before the red/purple line leave.
plusMETRO it would help people gauge from a a distance whether they will make it on the train. Keeping the subway on time #metrolosangeles
