  1. I think it was pretty poor planning to not have the Blue Line when (1) there was a huge event like this at LA Live/Convention Center, and (2) When that event prevented any alternatives from operating in the area. What better advertisement for Metro could there possibly be than to be able to say “Hey! We’re still running when the roads are otherwise closed!”

  2. I find this release to be missing information. I also think that it is presumptuous to assume that everybody that needs the bus service to also have access to twitter to “check for updates”.
    Please realize that you are the custodians of the public transportation trust and slipshode press releases cuase people that work extra hardships that are avoidable with careful forthought and courtesy. I have seen the map of the route and I would like to know what are the delays for the 720 route. I work at a hospital and I use your “service”.
