WhipMahHurr @metrolosangeles whichever bus driver you have on the 212 route that just passed Hollywood/Orange just passed me up standing there! Rude.

chasingwillow @metrolosangeles You should know that the Blue Line bus bridge is a screaming #fail Going from 7th&Metro to Washington takes an hour

A few compliments, observations and some good ideas, after the jump.
el_dude The gold line conductor on the 6:09 train from Union is a refreshing original! Tell him to keep it up! #Metrolosangeles
biminiroad Train arriving that isn’t filled to capacity! Woohoo! /cc @metrolosangeles
DavidCMurphy The LA County TAP (transit card) site taptogo.net is one of the worst sites ever. #MetroLosAngeles should take it over & redesign ASAP.
Observations in transit:
SimonOh Life is a highway and I will ride it all night long…but only if a light rail line runs along the median of it #metrolosangeles
MarciaGraham things I don’t love … @metrolosangeles in a surprise rain storm when I don’t have an umbrella or a hoodie. 🙁
ryanwhitacre Thank goodness I ride the @Metrolink and @MetroLosAngeles trains. #NoOneKnowHowToDriveInTheRainInLA
cristal19 Just took @metrolosangeles to see Tom Petty at the Hollywood Bowl! What should I do with the $21 I saved on parking, and 45 mins getting out
gilberthasnotwa @metrolosangeles should have a bus pass discount for emergency service workers.
mamimaria @metrolosangeles I would really love it if you offered metro student cards for homeschoolers. More ridership if you did that.
Grahas @metrolosangeles all of your lines should be heavy rail. The gold line is way 2 slow & could use higher capacity trains
