jonthelam Four line 33 buses traveling in a row here on Venice Blvd. Seems a bit inefficient @metrolosangeles.

ieko1224: @metrolosangeles new game! How many operators will it take to agree to let me buy a day pass w/ cash purse TAP

The June 26th schedule has completely screwed things up for my commute pretty badly. There used to be a Culver City mall trip originating on the line 108 that made it to La Tijera on time, and in time for the 212 connection at La Brea. Now, that run has to start in Marina del Rey where it is Always 7-14 minutes late. This costs me 45 minutes in total because the next 212 arriving at Slauson is over 30 minutes away. So instead of making it to the Red Line in time for the 7:11pm trip, I have to take the 7:26 or even the 7:42 trip! A bus that is 10 minutes late can mean the difference between me getting home at 7:15 and eight o’clock at night.
If this doesn’t get better, I am going to have to suck it up and start driving to work.
