Smart Cards Coming To NYC Subways [Headlines]
The MTA announces that Metrocards could be replaced with card systems linked to user's bank account.
New York Magazine explains:
After years of toying with the notion of the “smart card,” the MTA now says it plans to replace MetroCards with a sensor-card system in three to four years. The agency’s spokesman said, “It’s time for MetroCard to be replaced, which provides an opportunity for a rare triple play: a new system that’s easier for all customers to use, faster for boarding the transit system, and will save millions.”
