Metro is in the red. The hole is $100 million deep, and so, they’ve decided to trim some of the fat. The Daily News reports that they’re thinking about eliminating a few bus lines. 20 of them, to be exact. 12 of the lines are in the San Fernando Valley.
Um… WTF? Gas is supposed to hit $4.00 this summer, and it’s already close in some parts of the city. Congestion in the Valley seems to worsen daily. And what about the Mayor? You know, that guy who said we should all start taking the bus, and then flew off to campaign for Hillary? How is he supposed to get around the next time he visits the 818? How can he meet Mirthala for Wetzel’s Pretzels in Sherman Oaks if they take away the bus?
Why do you hate us so, Metro?
