A week ago I asked friends via Facebook: “What’s your least favorite bus link on LYNX and why?”
Mine is the 13 because there have been too many times when I’ve just barely missed it
and get stuck waiting a whole hour for the next one to come.
The consensus seemed to be hands down, that the 13 bus is abhorrent.
“The 13 sucks.”
“13. no explanation necessary.”
“It only runs once an hour and the bus stops have no benches or shade… So to wait for that long is kind of painful.”
“The 13 is frequently 15-20 minutes late, and it’s nearest East End Market stop is inexplicably by a Navy parking lot several blocks away.”
“The 13 is the route I ride to and from school. It is consistently & SIGNIFICANTLY late at my stop on Aloma near 436 heading toward UCF in the mornings
and afternoons–anecdotal report coming from over a year of rides. Also, the stop placements are kind of nonsensical…
maybe they haven’t been revisited since all the development along the route (a pretty significant amount in the past 4-5 years)
has taken place or something.”
“I’m sure the ghosts of long-gone base workers (and now Baldwin Park richies) are clamoring for that 13 line on General Rees.
Time for a re-do.”
This is an official S.O.S to LYNX to help make the 13 less painful.
