  • It is sad Chrystal from Redlands in commenting on the Daily News article on the Orange Line notes while Metro mentioned the owl 656 they forgot that line 150 runs all night along Ventura Blvd. As she notes “The MTA was stupid not to tell this reporter about this line.” And I can’t disagree with her on that.

  • Bulletin: whining by a 2-3 folks constitutes “outrage from some of its passengers” and as a consequence Metro is “under fire”. The usual “The Valley is robbed” Daily News storyline, hopefully now squelched by Art Leahy’s decision to run the Orange Line overnight for New Year’s Eve revelers. A triumph of the clueless “fair share” mentality. Sheesh!
