I know where MUNI could get $1.56B of capital to make up for that lost investment in the system. Just saying.
Ready the branders and design execs!
In two years time Translink/Clipper will need another overhaul to distance the card from its persistent delays and errors. And anyhow the current name makes me think of a grandma looking through coupons….
Justin, the thing that worries me is they put a hard date on getting off of the paper passes and it is fast approaching. I haven’t (knock on wood) had much trouble with the card since I got it. I have the auto load set up to add $30 when I drop below $10, and after the first time (which took 2 days) it now reloads within hours. And Caltrain, usually the error is with the reader, and even that happens rarely.
But MUNI fast pass loading sounds insane. I guess my wife is in for a bumpy ride, but luckily she bikes or walks to work 99% of the time. She just gets the pass for errands, going out and the rainy season.
Once it becomes the majority of users on the system, I have a bad feeling it is going to buckle under the weight. Time will tell. Question, once the MTA gets rid of the paper passes, is there any amount of Clipper fail that might bring them back?
UMM – WHAT DOES THIS MEAN???

“I have a sinking feeling we're all going to learn once again that hindsight is 20/20, and that all this caving to merchants' unfounded fears will result in an entire generation of lost opportunity to make our streets safer and more lively.”
