CoasterMatt Hey @MetroLosAngeles! in what freakin’ universe is 1 bus every hour ‘CONVENIENT’?
kapope @metrolosangeles, the 108W is 15 min. late. I worry that it may not come at all.
sunny_Menagerie @metrolosangeles so you’re cutting lines and times but still charging 75 a month? #ridiculous
eddiethelazor Two is a couple; three is a crowd. I just got left behind since their was already two bikes waiting on @metrolosangeles Line 656.
mightymendoza Dammit the @metrolosangeles bus I was going to take back from Trader Joes stopped running. Now to walk 2 miles home. #fail
intellichick Dear @metrolosangeles why have already missed 2 35/335 buses? I have been standing here for both of them.
PBunches I don’t care how much @metrolosangeles enhances Line 14, it’ll never get from Vermont to La Cienega in 20-25min like the 714 does. Not cool.
sirinya47 Also, I just saw a cockroach on my @metrolosangeles bus. Gross.
Kythera Sigh. A fantastic track record finally broken by westbound 108 that was 10 minutes late. #metrolosangeles

6miSE_DTLA @metrolosangeles, Looks great and its recyclable, if only they came in purple, and its destination was Santa Monica. http://bit.ly/hZmIf8
themunson @metrolosangeles The bike rack on rapid bus 9236 is on its last legs and could use an overhaul asap. Thanks!
kenyaw @metrolosangeles why are there no printed schedules on #metrorail platforms? Trains are often on time but patrons don’t know the schedule.
Observations in transit:
eddiethelazor @Amtrak Thank you Van Nuys Station for providing local transit schedules for @metrolosangeles @ladottransit & #BigBlueBus. Please keep it up
sirinya47 On the @metrolosangeles 920 for the last time before its discontinuation next Friday. #rip920
CarlessValGirl Bus driver of line 239 actually arrived on time… probably because he drives like an NYC taxi driver. I’ll take it. #metrolosangeles
jhvu Saw track bike getting stolen from @metrolosangeles 704 at Fairfax. If driver had said something sooner we could have chased thief!
kenyaw Rode all the way to end of the @metrolosangeles #BlueLine to Transit Mall station to go to the #Longbeach main library.
