Good ole reliable Metro Transit

Posted on Fri, Jan 6, 2012 at 1:22 PM

You have to love the transit service in this city. Get to the stop where a #20 is supposed to hit at 7:49am, see 6 OUT OF SERVICE buses go by before 8am and nary an appearance by the #20. No big deal, the #6 is supposed to hit the same area right around the top of the hour. Nope, nothing by ten-after. All right, let's call GoTime and see what's going on here, "We are experiencing technical difficulties. *click*" Oh. Meanwhile, three more OUT OF SERVICE tin cans on wheels go by.

Well I reckon I should probably motor down the street so I can hopefully at least catch a #1 and not be late for work. Two more OUT OF SERVICE buses go by as I speed walk (har-dee-har-har) down the very icy sidewalks to my destination. Fortunately the #1 is running and I make it to the office just a couple minutes late. All this on the coldest damn morning of the new year. I get it that buses can break down or be delayed, especially given the aging fleet that the city deploys. But wow, nearly a dozen OUT OF SERVICE buses on the road and not a one of them can be converted to an ad hoc #20/#6 to get people to their destinations. Good job, ya nincompoops! —Would Have Been Better Off Walking
