Turnstile Swipes Messed Up?

Posted on March 22nd, 2010 by The SUBWAYblogger in Transit Failures

Is anyone else having a real bitch of a time with the turnstiles the last few days?  I feel like a complete moron.

It all culminated with today when I swiped so much that I lost my fare.

I’m hoping that the guy in charge of cleaning the MetroCard slots is on vacation or something.  At my home stop, I have yet to swipe through on the first shot since last Tuesday.

I figured it was my card.  Luckily, my card ran out on Thursday night, so I got a brand new one Friday morning.  Same damn problem.

Today I nearly lost my mind.  I swiped about 10 times, then out of nowhere the turnstile said that my card was “just used.” Yet, I still couldn’t push though.

I had to go to the damn booth and get them to let me in.

Subway maintenance cuts must be getting underway.  Lovely.
