  1. Before Angelenos were so dependent on cars, LA had its very own subway system (1925-1955) #DTLAFact @metrolosangeles http://t.co/GZZFub3X6h

  2. The tunnels were actually for the old streetcars, but point well taken nonetheless. Everything old is new again and the L.A. area missed some golden opportunities after WWII to modernize its transit system, in effect placing all its transpo bets on the freeway and boulevard system. In hindsight, that was -- for lack of a better term -- incredibly stupid and moronic. 
  3. Got to love the train, I get to read a book while not worrying about traffic... #metrolosangeles #metrolink #patriciacornwell #nerdtime #bookworm

  4. I didn't get it either. 
  5. Elected officials should ride the bus at least 2x a week so that they can hear what their constituents have to say. @metrolosangeles
  6. Not a bad idea. :) 
  7. @metrolosangeles ..So tired of your rude drivers. Like the one on the 102,bus 5177 who won't even say good morning
  8. In their defense, they deal with a lot both before and after your ride. 
  9. Another quarter, another instance of passes on @metrolosangeles TAP card not working. Wish they would get it together. @UCLACommute
  10. @metrolosangeles Just watched 2 out of about 25 people tap their cards, blue line. Really? Lock down the platforms. Hire more officers. -_-
  11. Will pass this along to Sheriff's Department, which patrols Metro buses and trains under contract by Metro. 
  12. @metrolosangeles I feel sorry for people who miss the bus. They run and run and the bus pulls away and their misery is palpable.
  13. The infant wailed as the 1/3/13 10:26pm @metrolosangeles 180 zipped past without stopping at Colorado/Genevieve.
  14. @metrolosangeles detour information not ad complete as it should have been I am trying to board 10 at Temple'Fig where do I go?
  15. I agree that the detour information would be a lot more useful for everyday riders if there was a map included instead of a long description of the detour. 

  16. The link shows a tie with a rail map on the tie's underside. 
  17. @metrolosangeles hey now...I know that most of the guys in the big building wear ties everyday. So... :-)
  18. @metrolosangeles @gincase That's amazing. I can only imagine trying to give somebody directions on the subway and flipping over my tie!
  19. I can only imagine that, too, as I've worn a tie exactly once in the Metro building. I don't believe in them. 
  20. @metrolosangeles Thank you for using articulated buses for #4 at night. I am no longer standing and packed in like a sardine at 11 PM.
  21. @metrolosangeles there was a guy sleeping on the train and taking up 5 seats.
  22. The LASD has a transit watch smartphone app that can be used to send photos of issues that are non-emergencies to deputies. More information and links to the Apple and Android app stores here: transitwatchla.org/app
  23. @metrolosangeles whoever did that taptogo website for you guys should be hung. Absolutely worst user experience website on the planet.
  24. I agree that the website is difficult to use. The TAP folks are working on an overhaul. No ETA yet on debut date. 
  25. Just walked through Union Station end-to-end. Lots of Auburn fans already heading north. Little eager for the game to start are we?
  26. The photo shows a very unhappy Alabama coach Nick Saban after the team's loss to Auburn on the return of a missed field goal. 
  27. FWIW, Metro unofficially loves the way Auburn defeated 'Bama this year. Saban looked like a guy who missed every bus for the rest of time.
  28. It's true. Coach Saban was not happy. 
  29. We're unofficially happy Crimson Tide can't win everything every year. We're also very pleased Oregon can't be with us this evening. #BooHoo
  30. Hey, if 'Bama and Oregon meet in Rose Bowl in college football semifinals in the Rose Bowl next year, we'll say we love them. Even if secretly we do not. 
  31. @metrolosangeles hating on teams that are better than the teams in your region? That's embarrassing ignorant on our part
  32. @metrolosangeles Boooo it's still Roll Tide Roll and I'm a Metro Employee not coo
  33. Trolling for engagement much? MT @metrolosangeles: Very pleased Oregon can't be with us this evening. #BooHoo
  34. @metrolosangeles we're officially happy that none of the L.A. / Ca. Teams are nowhere to be found in the title game. Roll Tide!
  35. @metrolosangeles where are the Trojans? ..... Where are the Bruins??? Lol
  36. Oh, they still mad. MT @metrolosangeles We're also very pleased Oregon can't be with us this evening. #BooHoo
  37. Holy cow rumpus, what a game! Thx for riding Auburn & Florida State fans! Both teams played their hearts out.
