Metro Transit is broken

On the day the new Go Time system gets launched, I use it to find out why, for 30 minutes, none of the four buses that are supposed to drive by don't show up at all. It was a sunny day, with no accidents reported, but yet four buses that were scheduled to pick people up didn't appear "as scheduled." As a result, I missed a medical appointment (yes, I could have called a cab but that was money I wasn't willing to spend, besides I had given myself an hour to get there). In the end, what is usually a 45-minute drive home became a 1.5 hour commute, also making me late to pick up my child. I can understand one bus being late, even two, but four buses not showing up at all? What's the reason for that? In other cities I've never experienced such unreliable transit, and those have much larger areas to cover with much larger populations. Tell me, where do my tax dollars (or my $80 a month bus pass money) go? It sure isn't to make sure the buses run on time, or even show up! —Rubyjaye
