DC Riders Aren't Alone

Take heart Metro riders. We're not the only ones suffering with poorly run mass transit. We guess the U.S. just doesn't do public transport well. Here are some tweets from yesterday from around the country. Eerily familiar, isn't it?

From NYC:
Hate the bus f*ck MTA

NYC's MTA should spend more money on fixing subway stations, than on presentations abut rats:

Union Square, 5:30pm rally against #MTA fare hikes and service cuts. For information visit:

Traffic jam + mta bus going in reverse = worse possible idea... :(

From Boston:
Guess it's a good thing I don't have any clients scheduled for early evening. Orange line must be late due to heat exhaustion.

Orange line ridiculously late aweesommee

orange line was stop and go the whole way and now the bus wont start. hmmm yes more people on bus

Waiting for the orange line, ickies. No one likes the orange line.

I hate you so much right now, #mbta

Dear MBTA: it's 90 degrees. Turn off the heat on the trains.

From Chicago:
Someone should come up with a way to stop people from urinating on the red line. Icky.

CTA, only you could force me into such close proximity to such a glorious array of massive gunts

dear fellow CTA riders: being FAT and LAZY does NOT make you handicapped! give up your seats for the real disabled and elderly!

CTA Blue Line back to normal after smoke scare

Ugh. Now I have to deal with the cta I might as well not even try to make it to my first class... But I will.

Is "suckitude" the technical term?
