RobertMoranLA #metrolosangeles transition to the new TAP card has been frustrating for me. I use the EZ transit pass and not every provider uses TAP yet.
mrgilpin It took me 6 weeks to get my student TAP card and it expires before the end of the school year? This is ridiculous. @metrolosangeles
adamlarue Just waited 40 minutes for a @metrolosangeles blue line train with @grantquick. Measure R funds should be used for new #blueline trains.
CoasterMatt Hey @metrolosangeles – do you really think it’s safe for your buses to run so overcrowded that people can’t get to the exit at stops?
Kythera Eastbound 108 No. 5166 so crowded people had to board via rear doors. #metrolosangeles
metrofied84 Rush hour is crush hour on metro #33 @metrolosangeles
cecetravels I’m really loving @metrolosangeles’s new marketing campaign….
hnjohnso @tbreisacher Considering the @metrolosangeles rail is only 20 years old, I’m pretty impressed. Plus we don’t have rats like NYC.
myles111us @metrolosangeles – I look forward to each step Metro makes in the transportation infrastructure. Nice work, keep it up!
myles111us @metrolosangeles – just taking a moment to say that I think you folks perform a great service and your expansion is always welcome.

edebbm @metrolosangeles still wondering if it’s possible to put metro rail on nextrip #nextbus
ieko1224 @metrolosangeles the blue lights in the contracted fleet (Orion VI buses) make for a depressing ride. I think it’s time to remove those.
bentoboxx @metrolosangeles When all the up escalators are down at a red line station (Like tonight at Hollywood/Highland), can you put up a sign?
ieko1224 @metrolosangeles TAP stored val is great, but you need to do a better job of training operators in situations like EZPass+TAP for zone fare
DanielHarju @metrolosangeles Here’s a suggestion: post information about reroutes at bus stops!!! Might be old school, but sufficient way 2 inform us
ccjao Tested out Nextrip on @Metrolosangeles.Useful, but still has some kinks //ow.ly/4rFB6
