anahr @ciclavia bound! thank you @metrolosangeles for longer trains to accommodate bikes today http://4sq.com/f0k9mI
blinkie Bicyclists on the Gold Line trying to keep their bikes out of other people’s way. Compare that to your average parking lot. #metrolosangeles
markvalli .@metrolosangeles Gimme one of those longer trains at lake station, baby! @anahr & I need to get to @CicLAvia
stevelandharris Using @metrolosangeles during #CicLAvia was flawless with NextBus and racks to carry our bikes. Big ups to the great operators on 201 & 94!
Waltarrrrr Kudos to @metrolosangeles for the extra trains and buses around @CicLAvia yesterday.
adamlarue @metrolosangeles The Blue Line has hit a new low. Train vendor selling individual cigarettes and packs on the train.
blinkie @metrolosangeles Drivers don’t take Metro for the same reason Metro employees don’t — no service or unreliable service when they need it.
pxxxjxxx @metrolosangeles 239Bus8249 arrived with an emergency window dangling open. This is a serious risk. I’m losing faith in Los Angeles transit.
amysilstein 720 was empty but it passed dt stop and about 10 peeps waitng #metrolosangeles
sunny_Menagerie I rushed in vons to wait for a late bus…thanks for my wasted time @metrolosangeles
pxxxjxxx @metrolosangeles Your monday driver for the southbound 239 has been 30 minutes late for weeks now. Can you please reprimand or replace them?
CoasterMatt Hey @metrolosangeles – thanks for nothing! Another day, another bus that doesn’t show up. #commutingisfun
More tweets after the jump.
tombleich Just got off the # 4 bus to downtown LA 6508 with Patrice-she’s a great MTA driver, very friendly and professional@metrolosangeles
blinkie Trying out the new Union Station Starbucks. Gotta give props to @metrolosangeles for bringing more businesses to the station.
ZachBehrens New unofficial @MetroLosAngeles Rule: If you have cash, board after TAP holders so the bus can get moving while you fiddle with 20 coins.
blinkie @metrolosangeles You know what would push more riders to transit? Reliable, frequent bus service 24/7 where it’s vitally needed.
RedEbbm @metrolosangeles love NexTrip but it seems like the 256 is getting worse and worse on reporting to the system.
tedder42 These new @metrolosangeles buses are fancy with their low floor, but their lack of a pull-for-stop cable is disorienting.
