phillipkent Thanks @metrolosangeles for giving me a day old transfer, thus preventing me from getting on my next bus.
sheepdawg666 @metrolosangeles Stop selling exploitative financial products to vulnerable customers! Your transit VISA charges $4.95 a month! Obscene.

LindseySaladbar Okay, a GPS-based app would be a TOTAL game changer for @metrolosangeles. Right? Right.
plusMETRO Be a #GoodCommuter: If you use #MetroLosAngeles’ Nextrip, help fellow commuters at bus stops by telling them the next bus arrival time.
Redebbm1@metrolosangeles I know NexTrip still in beta but make sure your vehicles report. I think some might be turned off.
zachbehrens Awesome = @metrolosangeles + iPad + @instapaper + @longreads.
hnjohnso I am always paranoid about putting bikes in @metrolosangeles bus bike racks. Please don’t fall off!
Javi_Verified Nothing like people listening to music on speaker while riding @metrolosangeles #respectotherpeople#justsaying

@hnjohnso: be careful about those bike racks. On the bus today, some guy jacked another guy’s bike. The thief shoved the bike’s owner and took off. Bus driver and everyone on the bus (especially up near the front) saw the whole thing, but of course, couldn’t stop the thief.
The bike’s owner started running after the thief, and then borrowed another person’s bike and took off after him. I hope he caught up to the thief (though I think it’s unlikely)… too bad those buses don’t have dashboard cams!
@hnjohnso i was also afraid of my crusier falling off the 550 on the i-110 – the tire was too fat to fit inside – had to let some air out.
#757 good thing it’s not doomed, albeit i could see why they would cancel it since it parallels the 710 and there were only 5-10 people riding it.
The tweet in the Fail section above is actually from @_thedudeabides_ which is different from @thedudabides
I would hate to be misquoted.
