stevelandharris Big props to @metrolosangeles for letting loose bus realtime arrival on phones. Makes up for a lot and wipes out much of the rant section!
Juan_Matute Nextbus is @metrolosangeles‘s most significant advancement to attract choice riders since Metro Rapid.
NeelSodha NextTrip by Metro is the best thing ever! I want to stand at bus stops and give peeps their expected bus departure times #metrolosangeles
LovesToNomNom Using @metrolosangeles‘ NexTrip like it’s nobody’s bidness! Thank goodness for my iPhone 😀

krishaleanne this is like the answers to my prayers!! RT @LAist: When’s Your Bus Coming? @MetroLosAngeles Tests Mobile Info System http://bit.ly/icl9EK
kristencreag @metrolosangeles Nextrip has been amazing so far for my coworker and I. Very accurate.
Kythera Using #nextrip. It’s a little fast (108 eatbound arrived about 2 minutes after #nextrip indicated) but AWESOME! Kudos @metrolosangeles
UCLACommute @MetroLosAngeles, congratulations on your Nextrip Beta Launch. I used it last night; it works! http://bit.ly/gKSVl9
sunny_Menagerie @metrolosangeles thanks for updating the arrival times…so fun to sit here and wait a half hour…
RedEbbm @metrolosangeles should include metro rail in the nextrip predictions.
blinkie Hey @metrolosangeles the Nextrip mobile site looks useful, but why doesn’t it list light rail?
adamlarue @metrolosangeles Haven’t seen a fare inspector on the train at rush hour in months. Checking exit is useless. Hobos stay on.
grantquick @metrolosangeles this Blue line ride makes me never want to ride again. I might pass out from the smell. Does no one check fares anymore?
4foot13lori @metrolosangeles it better not take me two hours to get home..again. the 780 bus already is a no show for 7:05.
Snacob95 @metrolosangeles your website is funky. can’t get red line time tables.
SimonOh Sitting on @metrolosangeles Blue Line train holding at Anaheim Station due to debris in tracks, per the operator. It’s been 10 minutes now.
4foot13lori @metrolosangeles where’s my 704 bus? and why was the 4 ten minutes early?! and 2 mta workers take 4 seats. nice job.
MaryKnabben After being left by the bus, the next one is late!
Kythera Got to Slauson/Alviso @ 9:10am, next 108 didn’t get to Culver City Transit Ctr until 9:45. What’s wrong with this picture, @metrolosangeles?
seanivore Cool. Apparently looking at your phone while waiting for a bus is reason enough for the driver to not stop for me. @metrolosangeles
ToffeeTurtles I love @metrolosangeles! It makes keeping our co. as sustainable as possible, possible! I take the bus to demo @WholeFoods3rdSt & @WFMWeho.
anamu Omg, love the 5:30 260 bus driver. Happily talks about the sunset, reminds us to buy the lotto, & wishes us fab evenings@metrolosangeles
plusMETRO Gas prices soaring, yet thanks to @metrolosangeles, I don’t have to worry. #GoMetro
MartinLewis The @metrolosangeles online trip planner is awesome! Well designed.
intellichick I’m a @metrolosangeles passholder: Every time gas prices go up, I shrug and say “Meh.”
