What a disgrace! Once at Noho station at 5:20 PM, there was not one metro employee giving riders an update or informing what was happening. The red line train only went from NoHo to Universal City station where people had to board a shuttle bus to another red line station. With easily more than 500 people waiting and more arriving because other buses were arriving to Universal City station as the last stop, the waiting crowd got bigger. while waiting on ground level at the Universal City station/bay, only 1 bus showed up in more than 20 minute wait. No one waiting had a clue where to wait for the shuttle bus. There was no one to tell anyone where to wait and how long to expect to wait. Pathetic!
