    Hello to All! (AGAIN)

    Good Idea! I think this is an ambitious undertaking and, potentially, a much-needed forum for our news and views.
    Let’s Party!

    The MTA needs to get their act together. Two weeks ago approximately 15 students including myself were stranded by the MTA while waiting for the bus after attending late night classes at CSULA. We were waiting for the Bus at the Freeway station. The highway maintenance crews erected barriers and cut off the freeway going into downtown Los Angeles. This was at 10:10pm. We students some of whom are OSD students were forced to hike across the freeway to Ramona Boulevard and wait for MTA Bus #70 to ride into downtown. This is total lack of consideration for students who rely on public transportation. Many OSD students rely on public transportation.

    On more than one occassion the elevator connecting the station to the freeway bridge has been out of order. This happens on rainy days especially. The only alternative to getting to the bridge to walk over the freeway is about four flights of stairs. This is a strenous walk. Some students who are senior citizens and OSD students are put at an extreme disadvantage by this. I have witnessed more than one elderly MTA passenger grasping their heart after walking up the stairs. I am afraid it will take a fatal heart attack by a passenger of some other type of serious mishap to get the MTA to improve their service to students at CSULA. The MTA needs to get their act together.
