From a little blurb in the Downtown News about Ed Reyes getting appointed to the MTA board:

The MTA oversees more than 73 miles of bus and railroad lines in Los Angeles County.

That 73 miles is just about right for rail, but since what they wrote includes bus -- well, there's only so much you can include in "more than".

According to the fact sheet, the MTA has 189 bus routes, 18,500 bus stops (isn't that high? almost 100 stops per route?), and 2,100+ buses in service on any given weekday. I really hope all those aren't on the same 73 miles.

I know it's just bad editing, but that's what I expect of the Daily Trojan, not the Downtown News.
