Metro spokesman Angela Gates goes on the record in the article saying Metro gets a bad rap.
This is partially true, but we feel a good deal of that is Metro's own doing.Then, her comments take a strange turn, blaming the bad rap on riders. At least that's how we read it.
"If there is a delay during morning rush hour, and we have a bad morning rush hour, that whole week, people are talking about how bad that rush hour was."
She then goes on to say "They don't realize that for the last month we have had perfectly fine rush hours."
Not sure when she said that, but it certainly must have been before this week.
The report does site Metro's very positive role in redevelopment and the possibility of Metrobus alleviating traffic woes.
We'd love to hear what you think of this. To us, Gates seems to be saying it's our fault Metro doesn't work as well as we'd like it to.
Come on Metro, at least take SOME of the blame for your rap gap.
