Bus drivers shouldn’t be acting as cashiers memorizing what to do to load a daily pass onto TAP or not, etc. They should be paying attention to driving the bus and the security of the passengers, not acting as cashiers.
This is another reason why we should just move straight to TAP-in/TAP-out distance based fares with automatic daily cap.
You just tap-in, tap-out, let it deduct fares based on distance traveled and once hits the daily rate, it caps off automatically. Bus drivers won’t even have to do anything!
I took a look at the Orange line ridership numbers. Curious as to if there is a capacity? In other words, at what number does Metro think they will have to implement an alternative like adding a lane for express buses or perhaps light rail conversion?
In reply to the Union Station bathrooms. This is ONE thing LACMTA REALLY needs to consider remodeling, IF Los Angeles Union Station needs an upgrade. The bathrooms at Union Station are always dirty, look real old, and sometimes (especially the bathrooms near the Patsaouras Transit Plaza) really smell like urine.
I understand the hand driers, but after one week, and six days, on Metro buses overnight, they damaged the skin of my hands.
As well, there should be a map of all the public bathrooms in Downtown Los Angeles, and besides, if one does find one, that is not in a building (i.e. those green public bathrooms, or ones at transit centers, again i.e. El Monte Transit center, the bathrooms are downstairs) they are probably dirty, like Union Station’s.
