cindymariej 96 bus @metrolosangeles just cut off 3 lanes of traffic at Rowena/Fletcher to make a left turn #311
CarlessValGirl #metrolosangeles, I need to be honest w/ you. The reason I’ve not complained about service lately is because I’ve been riding my bicycle.
ActOut Why does it have to be announced on the @metrolosangeles bus “Stop requested” and to use rear exit, but not what the next stop is? Grr! #fb
CoasterMatt Once again, at the mercy of @metrolosangeles and it’s wonderful system. I wonder if the drivers paychecks arrive as sporadically as the bus?
Grahas @metrolosangeles UGH! That does not go far enough west. it should go to VA and beyond. The city of Los Angeles will never get anything right
dhunter682 @metrolosangeles Please work to reduce the stop-and-go operation of the Red line – it’s very unpleasant.
GayTownKTown @metrolosangeles recommends purple line sans Crenshaw – sad day 🙁
kapope @metrolosangeles, the 108 into the Marina (which is scheduled every 3 hours on weekdays) is late again.

Kythera KWOOHOO! The 9:02 @ Crenshaw/Slauson108 was right on the button, today! 😀 #metrolosangeles
RobertMoranLA My home is where I feel welcome. Because of the #metrolosangeles transit system, LA is where I feel welcome and thus at home.
JMoNGE ♪Manu Chao ♪ + @metrolosangeles = 🙂
@LisaPatricio @DougBenson I wish the red line had wireless. I may have attempted the standby line. Hey @metrolosangeles, wireless?
hnjohnso Yay for the Big Blue Bus being on Google Transit but when will Foothill Transit be back? @metrolosangeles

jonthelam Taking the @metrolosangeles the whole week. Not because I don’t want to ride in the rain but because I’m choosing not too.
el_dude going @metrolosangeles to LA Beerfest!!!!
ZachBehrens Tonight’s ride on the @MetroLosAngeles Red Line back to the Valley was mostly @DowntownArtWalk and @LAOpera folks.
eddiethelazor It rarely happens but sometimes you get stuck with foreign currency. A @metrolosangeles vending machine game me an Ecuadorian 25¢ centavo.

I’d like to take a moment to praise my bus driver on 9270 again. Her badge number was 71945. She refused to let the non-paying-turned-violent bus driver onto the bus. She was gracious in providing customer service, reassuring us even as she herself was shaken (I mean, someone threw a STORM GRATE at our bus and aimed it at her!) I could tell Metro trained this driver well.
