gbrey @metrolosangeles have to stop taking Westbound Olympic buses (28/728) always late, can never trust the schedule!
jmossinca @metrolosangeles It really stinks that, come December, Line 920 is being eliminated. So much for RAPID transit. #metrofail

CarlessValGirl Bus 165… can’t you ever arrive on-time? Six minutes makes a difference. I’ll likely miss my connection again… #metrolosangeles
FredCamino oh boy, @MetroLosAngeles 2 late night fail… calling taxi
thebusbench And who does #Metrolosangeles think they are 2% use their product & they call critiques of the service rants, so disrespectful.
@thebusbench, no disrespect intended. Sometimes Metro service gets on all our nerves and we vent on Twitter. As you can see, I’m even guilty of a rant this week.
But hey, if anyone else is upset by the use of the word rant, let us know the comments – if there’s significant response we’ll change it to something less offensive.
nbrunskill Thanks @metrolosangeles for getting me to Union Station so easily. So fun passing jammed traffic riding the green line and the silver line.
Comments on the heat wave, plus a few observations and a good idea, after the jump.

thebusbench At greenline Rosa Parks. Interesting #metrolosangeles fact it’s very hot at the station because the benches aren’t under the shade.
reubenduarte Dear @MetroLosAngeles, please install cover for the westbound No. 2 bus stop at Sunset & Sweetzer. There’s no shade and it’s bright and hot!

reinix @metrolosangeles Is there a Metro app for iPhone/Android devices? If not, there should be. With schedules, routes, maps, tweets, and all. 😀
@reinix, Metro recently released an app for iPhone. Check it out by searching for “Go Metro” in the iTunes store or check out this page for more info.
