Charlie Tickets

The T has finally outlined its plan to roll out the new charlie ticket systemwide.

I live off the blue line, and it is true that things are working better than when the kiosks and new turnstyles were installed. Still, it's incedibly annoying that the card works almost nowhere else. I'm back to waiting for tokens when I come home, because i can't buy tokens at Wonderland.

Also, I remember the T promising the system would be systemwide by the end of this year, not next year. And even that was a delay, because an automated system was promised when the fare went to $1. I remember that clearly, ebcause the T disingenuously listed that as an accomplishment when they raised fares to $1.25 three years later. So let's get cracking.
