Transit TV – Finally Gone

July 8, 2009 by Dave Haynes

Thank God this nightmare is gone. What torture it was to ride the bus in Los Angeles with the shrill programming blaring in your face mile after mile with no escape possible (even headphones couldn’t block it out). Once in a great while they would show an interesting travel feature or news story, but it was generally intrusive crap in both languages. I could have tolerated it better if they had NO SOUND with closed captioning. And yes, the GPS map was interesting (now if only we could track the buses in real time on the Metro web site like they do in other cities so we know when and if the bus is going to show up). Unfortunately, I’m sure this POS will be resurrected eventually given the cash-strapped nature of our municipalities. Just like those stupid video screens in the Ralph’s supermarkets….
