BBB Maxella Trash Fix??


The photograph above documents the situation at the Maxella AV and Lincoln BL stop on their number 3 Line.  It is the sort of work one would expect from the LACMTA.  They taped or caused to be taped shut the aperture in the plastic pipes associated with power poles.  These pipes were used as improvised trash cans. BBB N.B. The stop still needs a trash can!

Su Topo will lead every post with the above until BBB corrects the problem.  How about it Mr. Edward King?

White Line Incursion Series 

Su Topo uses video to highlight the problem of scofflaw drivers endangering Metro bus passengers yet, no authority seems to want to take ownership of the problem.  The issue is not unique to the particular site which this Mole documents, but is illustrative of a general problem.  Your Mole encourages you to report similar problems to the appropriate agencies in your area(s) and hope that you will have better luck than he.  In the youtube.com videos linked below one can see exactly what happens when the policing agencies fail to enforce traffic laws.

The videos linked below document that, and this is important, a never ending stream of vehicles fail to use the lane as required by law. 

Neither are the policing agencies active when it comes to protecting us by bringing these obvious and frequent traffic law violations to an immediate halt.  The LACMTA is derelict as well, in that they fail to use the near hourly proof of the violations captured by the on board cameras, mentioned here and discussed at length in the posting of 2012-05-31. 

In the following video, which is not my best, the sun was providing a too bright background and two of the three vehicles are best described as almost subliminal blurs.  However, we can see a Super Shuttle van after it has crossed the white line and cut ahead of a stopped bus and is more visible as it heads west.

This has not been a good month for video, so you will have to take my word for it that, early on Friday morning, May 24, 2013, four vehicles cut in front of the 111 bus that was taking me to the LAXCBC so that I could catch a Delta flight.  I have no video but one is obtainable almost every trip.  This time a large rent-a-car bus, two regular cars and a limo convoyed past us!

La Taupe feels that it is appropriate to dedicate each videos to ALL the agencies who should be protecting us.  So, they are dedicated to (1): Airport (LAWA) Police,  the L.A.P.D., the L. A. County Sheriffs Department and Mr. A. Leahy who is CEO of the LACMTA.

<<Dans les démocraties, chaque génération est un peuple nouveau.>>  
Alexis de Tocqueville: (1805-07-29~1859-04-16)

[In the democracies, each generation is a new people.]

The Mole reads the papers and other things, obviating the necessity of your doing so.


It has already started; the vocal opposition to what I believe is a transportation idea without an intellectual foundation, viz., the Downtown Corrector Connector.  It should be called the Corrector because it really an attempt to band aid over the poor planning which went into the transportation system in Los Angeles.

The LACMTA is discovering rather late in the process that, when lines dont cross there is no way for passengers to transfer from one to another.  The main example of this blunder is the Gold Line, had they connected the Gold Line to the Red Line at, say, Civic Center there would not be that much of a problem.  The Gold Line already has more twists and turns than the single bullet theory, so straightening it out would have probably reduced its cost and perhaps even shortened the travel time.

But no, the LACMTA rather than turning such an important design to professionals, they, uuhh, voted on it.  The Corrector is another instance of votes over minds.  A  letter to the Los Angeles Times refers  to the Corrector as a subway which it is; a subway to nowhere.  Which subway according to the Metro website ( http://www.metro.net/projects/connector/ ) has a price tag of 1.366 billion dollars and will be completed in 2020!  That means the streets of Los Angeles will be ripped up for years and for what? For a link that is more than adequately provided by Dash service!  You can see a Live map of exactly where Dash will take you in the downtown area here and view the LADOT home page aqui. 



Dash Gets It Done


Will the Corrector replace Dash?  Ahhhh, no, because Dash covers more than the downtown area.  So, in all likelihood the Corrector will replace only a small portion of the Dash system, therefore, under the if it aint broke dont fix it rubric, the LACMTA should quit this ill conceived project while it is ahead.


Additionally, a number of bus routes which subsumes the path between and the Gold Line Red Line presently exist.  I have created a subset of the Metro Downtown System Map (available here) below, so that you can see for yourself.  N.B. a short, healthy walk will make other lines available to you.


One can be fairly certain that at least some of those lines will exist after the Corrector is implemented and monies that could help to further the subway to the VA Hospital have been flushed.



Gold Line Red Line Links


I checked the Next Bus web site and found neither LADOT nor Dash listed as a customer.  Does this mean that the LADOT group did this nice real-time tracking system themselves and found a less than $10,000 per bus plus annual fees plus way of doing the project?  Anyway, according to Syncromatics who according to their website “… is a provider of transit ITS solutions, specializing in bus tracking, automated passenger counting, passenger information systems and route analytics.

 The route analytics service immediately caught my eye since the LACMTA desperately needs to better analyse bus routes so that on-time performance can be improved AND deterministic trip times can be expected when connections are required.  Su Topo would like to see buses perform on a more deterministic schedule and using you cell to find out more-or-less how late your bus will arrive is not what he had in mind.  I know that this concept gives LACMTA management raging headaches whenever it is brought up because they find it more fun to simply spend your tax money; spend in the area of ONE BILLION DOLLARS per year based upon the Metros own source of funds estimate of $10 billion over 10 years.

Here is interesting calculation based upon the LACMTAs own estimate of ridership; the daily rosy ridership estimates of 88,444 daily trips annualizes to 321936160 riders.  Developing a cost per rider over the 10 years after the thing is completed, that is amortization of the development costs over a ten year period means that each rider would have to pay $4.23; a 20 year amortization should yield a $2.11 per passenger.  Based upon past guesstimates by the LACMTA, I am confident that the daily trips estimate which translates to 44.22, two thousand person Army Divisions pouring through the Corrector is a serious distortion of the actual ridership.

Really?  Has the LACMTA never heard of a cost benefit analysis?  As someone intimately familiar with Tokyos massive transportation system and its history, I can assure you that the Yamanote loop line was built first (1895~1925); it is the wheel from which the spokes of the modern Japanese transportation system radiate.  The Yamanote Loop circumscribes a distance of 34 Km or 21 miles, which is ten times the distance of the pitiful little Downtown Connecter.  The Yamanote loop is the foundation upon which the Japanese have carefully, professionally, planned and built their system.  Not as we in Los Angeles with our special burden of political design are being forced to accept.  Something that, I have termed a band aid, doesnt even rise to that level.  It is a problem created by those who lack the technical skills necessary to understand the unique problems of transportation but who do not let that lack stop them from cobbling together solutions. 

Who even knows what role that downtown Los Angeles will have in the scheme of things? Rather than advancing a true need, the subway to the VA Hospital sea.  Santa Monica and Los Angeles will both be transportation sources and sinks.  When one looks at the history of Downtown Los Angeles over the past forty years is has been one of shrinking retail with the loss of the several large department stores due to consolidation.  My mother talks of trips with her mother downtown to shop the month-end sales.  Such talks  left me with the impression of crowded stores and an occasional after shopping lunch in one or another of the in-store cafeterias.

Its a Los Angeles which no longer exists.  Americas present economic difficulties make accurate projections for anything problematic, much less a ridership based upon, what?  Making accurate ridership estimates is something at which the LACMTA has proved to be especially inept. 

So the LACMTA does something at which it excels spending the taxpayers on the Expo Line which is NOT rapid transit, but a hybrid that is the worst of both worlds.  They take inflexible positions on issues, the latest being the fiasco around the Leimert Park Station on the Crenshaw Line.

 Poor project management, studies, design, planning and building leave us with a system like that in use in San Jose, CA, a city of 38% the land area and 25% the population of Los Angeles.


Our Los Angeles Times is enamored with reporting the potential noise levels in the Disney Hall rather than the pipe dreams of the LACMTA.

Wired magazine has a piece (Glave) on bullet trains in the U.S. which features the progress made by California. Well, the progress up to February 2010 at least.  But no matter, the article is still operative since there has not been much accomplished since that date, IF one ignores the bid rigging, oh!, Im sorry that is incorrect, I should say adjustments to the bidding process.  It is just when I used a Google search with the following search argument California High speed rail +"bid rigging", I was presented with cerca de 845 results for those who care Bing returned only 31 items. So one can understand how that term became wrongly imprinted in my memory.  I apologise for the error.   Nevertheless, it would seem that the CHSRA wants to select a bidder who would not have been acceptable under the prior, more stringent, rules.

The article opens with: After decades of false starts, planners are finally beginning to make headway on what could become the most complicated infrastructure project ever attempted in the US.  In order to update the article it would first be necessary to insert plus three years and three months after the word decades, above.  I am not sure what else could be written, other than, when politicians are involved in transportation projects, citizens should expect little and they will never be disappointed.

Please read the informative article. Just follow the link which I have included in the Works Cited line for the piece (vide infra).

The Los Angeles Times has a story (Nelson) which once again demonstrates to this Mole that in spite of all the feedback meetings held by the LACMTA so that they can rubber-stamp bad policy, when faced with real ridership pushback, they, uhhh, cave.  In this case it is the reversal on the decision against a Crenshaw Line Station at Leimert Park.

This piece is the first of Ms Nelsons work su Topo has quoted.  And nice work it is! 

I just wish that we could get the Times to get behind the idea of effectuating MASS RAPID TRANSIT instead of street level light rail which is only mass transit and accident prone mass transit, at that.

The Los Angeles Daily News reports (Scauzillo; May 18) that Foothill Transit is severing its contract with their management company, Chicago based Veolia Transportation Services.  ‘"At this time we believe it is important to control our own destiny and costs by bringing that management team in-house," read a report to the Foothill Transit Executive Board dated May 24.’

Speaking of contractors, MV Transit seems to be developing a group of drivers who lack basic skills, notably many drivers cant maintain an equidistant space between the front and rear exits and allow for a bus to curb space which allows  debussing passengers to take a normal step from the bus to the curb.  Further, some drivers are as rude as or ruder than those who work for Metro.  Not a good sign, is it Mr. Carter Pate?

I dont praise the LACMTA I have said that they excel at spending money but they also keep their eyes peeled for new sources of funds.  The Los Angeles Daily News informs (Scauzillo; May 28) us that the LACMTA wants to charge a “Congestion Fee” for “every new home, store or office building.”  The fees for an new home were planned to be just under $2000, while a new store might cost $30,000.  After more than 50 businesses signed a letter opposing the measure, the program suddenly was withdrawn from Wednesday's Metro Planning and Programming Committee and placed on hold.”  One of the mottos of the LACMTA should be do, then plan.

Another Los Angeles Daily News piece covers (Marquez ) the Gold Line out to Montclair.   Please read these local reporters work products.  I found them all interesting and informative.  Nice work ladies and gentlemen!

Ear (and Eye) to the Rail 
Cautionary Note: Those employed by the LACMTA should NOT view the following videos.  The speed of the trains in the videos, because they are truly rapid transit, their quietness, the clarity and sound level of the onboard announcements will likely make you dizzy, nauseous and frighten you.  Additionally, the concept of having a DIRECT LINK to the airport should place you in a state of cognitive dissonance, which occurs when two cognitions complete.  Cognitive dissonance results in the case where Cognition 1, It is impossible to directly link a city to its airport and cognition 2, many cities are directly linked to their airports.  The Los Angeles Times

 One can learn more about cognitive dissonance here.  But again, I must caution LACMTA management and staff that they should not try this sort of psychological study at home and definitely not without the involvement and guidance of a trained professional.

What people headed to the airport want to hear is one seat, one ride not what we are forced to say here in Los Angeles, viz., at minimum, three seats three rides. 

Here is a link to a video of trains arriving at the Lindbergh Station inside Minneapolis-Saint Paul International Airport.

I especially selected this video because (1) it shows something that the LACMTA believes cant be done, viz., building a transportation terminal right on the airport and under the terminals.  The video shows (2) that a station can be colorful and brightly lighted; for comparison purposes, when I ride say, the LACMTAs Red Line, I half expect to see vendors selling Soylent Green.  Finally one can also clearly see (3) that station stairways can and should have both an up and a down escalator in a train/subway station.

Thank you too, traindad95for the download!

Youtube.com, thank you very much for complementing my words with videos!

Su Topo has discussed quantum computing in the past and it seems that a Canadian company is producing and selling quantum computers.  I will provide some links and you, my readers, may come to your own conclusions.

Here is a link to the D-waves website.   There are lots of things to read there.

Then, here is a Forbes® Magazine article about a consortium of D-waves customers. 

Finally, please listen to this short NPR audio report and then, perhaps after further research, draw your own conclusions.

Are we alone in the universe?  This is a difficult question with no simple answers, but the bottom line answer is, based upon the enormous size of the universe, NO we are not alone! 

You can read through this linked material of ten years ago and see if you agree.  Most of it is fairly understandable.

The Mole rides again, so you will know that finding the least noisy seat will involve moving around the train.

(All times are expressed in the 24 hour system.)

2013-05-07 I ride down Florence AV on a 111 Line bus with other passengers who also have a free ride because the Fare box on bus number 14893 is broken.

 2013-05-10 A Belgian couple, from the French speaking part of the country, needs assistance in getting to their hotel which is right on my way so I see that they exit at the correct stop.

 2013-05-11 I wait to board a 232 line bus at the LAXCBC.  The driver, # 80775 takes a leisurely smoke, fills out some paperwork and we depart four minutes late.  A no smoking policy which helped drivers quit would pay real dividends for, in this case, MV Transport.  It gets worse, she is a rough and jerky driver (accelerate-brake , repeat ).

 2013-05-12 LAXCBC@14:00.  La Taupe assists a French student find her way to Union Station.  She is in the US studying business at an eastern university. 


Pictured above, from an unusual perspective, is a section of track in the Mariposa Station.  You know the station, the one with unrepaired cracked glass up above peoples heads.  The track and roadbed is never cleaned because the LACMTA doesnt know what maintenance, in any language, means.  Anyway, the LACMTA is incapable of parallel processing, i.e., building more stuff I cant in good conscience say, building a transportation system”— while at the same time maintaining what has been already build.  Or for that matter fully implementing the TAP process or the access control gates, need I continue?

Then , above, we can see a trackside view of the litter along the rail at Douglas/Rosecrans Station. One wonders what will happen when these materials burst into flames because someone has carelessly tosse a cigarette butt away?

2013-05-24 @ 9:15 Your Mole rides the Blue Line to Long Beach.  The LACMTA has no best practices for on-board PA use, and the one aboard my train like those at most LACMTA facilities is cheap, tinny sounding and LOUD! The volume on this particular train is set just a hair below the level of pain.  The blaring announcement informs me that the train will only go as far as the Willow Station before we are forced off, cheated out of a one seat trip to Long Beach.  To make matters worse, a big man starts a far ranging conversation with a young woman, when it turns to religion, I move away.  A different seat in a different car means only that I traded a soliloquy for a medium-loud cell phone conversation.  Plus we are treated with a few more shrieks about terminating at Willow Station from the operators cabin.  The LACMTA working for you, but as could be expected, not very well.  I dont understand how stranding us at Willow Station improves service.  It would seem that a service oriented organization, which the LACMTA is not, could schedule thing so that we could have a deterministic (Please, Mr. Lehey, look it up) trip length.

 I wait on the platform at Willow Station and find that the man is still haranguing the young woman and maneuvering her towards me.  I move away and find that I am in the center of the circle being walked, as he talks, by the man with the cell phone.

 At last, the train arrives and I board and find myself in the midst of a sea of yellow safety vests being worn by young students and their teachers who are on their way to visit the Aquarium of the Pacific.  The students, for the most part, are very well behaved.  I marvel at how the teachers reassign seat on the train in order to separate overly-social students and maintain, really, decorum!  If you can read this, thank a teacher.



Recycle Cart

2013-05-26 at Mariposa Station:  On this Green Line trip I noted that a recycler had made his work easier, as pictured above.  He used a large cart to haul large, fully stuffed garbage bags, which cart is shown waiting on the platform for its owner.

We can see the cart, below, on board the train.


Recyclables Onboard

I would expect to see something like this in rural China, not in Los Angeles County, right, Mr. Leahy?  People which handle these items, some of which come to them partially filled with an unidentified liquid, soil their hands and proceed to touch parts of the train, bus, station and etc. throughout the day.  This allows them to become a disease vector which, in these days of H7N9 is something

Perhaps someone should contact the Los Angeles County Board of Health because you, Mr. Leahy, seem powerless to correct these situations, which you Mole thoughtfully points out to you.

2013-05-26 aboard a 232 Line bus:  The MV Transportation driver shouts out "Who rang the bell" as we are about to enter the LAXCBC.  Most regular passengers know that this is the northern terminus of the 232 line, but some may not.  "Decorum" is not a word which can easily be associated with the LACMTA nor its drivers contract or employees.

2013-05-26 @ 17:10 : I wait for a 111 Line bus.  The driver, number 28694, in comming off her break and talking on her cell phone as we mill about.  She motions us aboard the bus , but does not board herself, nor does she monitor boarding.  But she does continue her conversation outside the bus; we leave late.

Fare Box Score Box and related Lists of Shame

I.D. Numbers of buses with Out of Order Fare Boxes: 14893; 8430;

Note: No or few entries above do not necessarily mean all fare boxes are in operation. 

I.D.Numbers of Distracted Drivers: xxxxx (i);

None included here, but observations of a minor nature may be included in the main posting;

Codes: (i) Extended conversation(s) with passenger(s) or (ii) cell phone call(s).  Frequently, details can be found in the text above, (ii*) cell phone call(s) which are aggravated by some other action, (iii) Self-distracted.  Codes (ii*) and (iii)  will ALWAYS be explained in the posting.

I.D. Numbers of Buses Defaced by WhoIs stickers: xxxx;

~UR or +UR = (+UR) whois sticker and the ugly residue left after passengers partly remove the sticker. (~UR) = Only the ugly residue left after passengers almost completely remove the sticker. +L = an old (legacy) sticker black letters on a plain white background these are the original form of the defacement.

* Another reason for displaying the operator's ID on the internal display and the headsign.

ID numbers of Buses whose Head and Tailsigns disagree: xxxx xxx/xx;

Format is Bus number followed by Headsign number/Tailsign number.

ID numbers of Buses without Braille signs: XXXX;

METRO drivers Basic Technical Skills Report

The format is Driver number F[{Y/-n/+n} C[{Y/N+/-}].  Meaning of F if Y the driver stopped with the Bus stop flag pole somewhere between the bus front door frames.  A negative number, e.g., -3 is the approximate distance in metres (think yards dear readers) between the nearest bus door vertical frame member and the flag pole signifying that the bus stopped short of the flag.   A positive number, e.g., +3 (metres) is the approximate distance between the nearest bus door vertical frame member and the flag pole signifying that the bus stopped past the flag.  The value for C[{Y/N}], Y tells us that the driver stopped within an easy step from the curb to the bus, N means it was NOT an easy step from the curb to the bus.   It is this Mole's belief that an average experienced good driver should be able to control his bus so as to position in near the curb and with the flag pole slightly to the front of the bus.  

Xxxxx F[Y] C[Y]; xxxxx F[Y], C[Y]; xxxxx F[Y], C[Y]; xxxxx F[Y], C[Y];  N.B. distances are in metres, think yards.

nnnnn* = Contract Driver

I.D. numbers of drivers who are almost guaranteed to give you a Rough and Jerky (R & J) ride.  xxxxx;

I.D. numbers of drivers who will give you a potentially life-threatening ride.  XXXXX(-); XXXXX(-);

Codes: S = not wearing seat belts; J = bad judgment (unsafe driving practices).


La Taupe's Abréviations

ADADO = Automatic Destination Announcement (on) Door Opening. This feature is installed on many buses and operates on extremely few.  Another money down the toilet LACMTA investment.  La Taupe that this is intended for the visually impaired because people who can see can read the head signs.

ASAS = Automatic Stop Announcement System the GPS (Global Positioning System) driven mechanism for generating audio for the upcoming stops. N.B. Because of the low power (read weak) processors used in the on-board stops may be too close to identify stops separately.  This is known as a granularity problem.  Then too, if the driver operates the bus at speed above the speed limit you will find the system back announcing stops which you have already passed.  I find that this will NOT keep some drivers from complaining that you didnt signal (ring) in time.  They dont understand their relationship to the system and how, by driving faster than the GPS computer, they can bias it.

BBB = Santa Monicas Big Blue Bus

CHSRA = California High-Speed Rail Authority, which is the equivalent, in more ways than one, of the LACMTA.

CC or CCMBL = Culver City (Municipal) Bus (Lines)

CCTC = Culver City Transportation Center this is the place formerly known as FHMTC = the Fox Hills Mall Transportation Center (Sepulveda & Slauson)

FFE = Full Fare Equivalent (presently $1.50)

GMBL = Gardena Municipal Bus lines

ITC = Inglewood Transit Center

LAXCBC = the LAX City Bus Center.

OCTA = Orange County Transportation Authority.

Rapid Transit = does not compete for right of way, that is, it will not run at grade unless it has EXCLUSIVE DEDICATED USE of the right of way).

R & J = Rough and Jerky [ride].

TT = Torrance Transit.

T1 = the normal type of driver/staff.

T2 = is the non-stop talker type of driver/staff, on the phone or to passengers,

T3 = the uncommunicative type of driver/staff, sometimes surly.

WLATC = the West Los Angeles Transportation Center (Fairfax & Apple)

Su Topos Disclaimer and apologia
Your Mole always attempts to write an easy-on-the-eyes page using text input.  Blogger.com however, has other ideas and will often not stay with a single font type or point size, produces extraneous spacing and etc.  I wish I had time to debug the HTML which they produce, it is NOT the straight text which I pasted into the form, but I dont.  Therefore, I apologize on behalf of Blogger.com for the changes which they make, of which I do not approve.  Sometimes, what I see, thankfully you dont, is 24 point type it is giant and other times they swallow my text, although it still seems to be there.  In fairness to them, things seem better, although this is partly because I do understand which of their features do the most damage to me and consequently do not use them.  Communicating these problems to them, for me, is something like having teeth extracted without the benefit of anesthetic, actually it is less fun than that.  By their design, there is no simple e-mailing them with "Please look at my say, posting of 2009-06-28, it is weird! I am hoping that one of their developers will someday read this, copy my code and improve their text to HTML engine.  Until then, lo siento.
