The transit agency has created a Facebook page as a more casual way of connecting with commuters, so even if your ride was a lot longer than you planned Thursday, Metro wants you to be their friend.
The page includes upcoming events like track work and has RSS feeds showing real-time bus and rail service disruptions.
Metro also wants its fans to weigh in on the discussion board. The first discussion is seeking ideas for Metro to raise more money, hopefully helping the transit agency avoid service reductions that could make riding Metro a lot less enjoyable.
More Facebook features are planned for the future.
