Not since I got one of these babies.....
This beats the old magnetized paper ticket that either a) gets lost, b) gets demagnetized, or c) runs out of value at exactly the wrong time by a factor of oh, say, twelve. Instead, you simply swipe and go (not a word, Jamie).
To be fair, my total bill for mass transit to and from work is about $185 per month. However, take two gallons per day (@$4.50, friggin' California special single malt blend gasoline) plus $4 bridge toll times twenty days per month, all NOT tax-deductible, and it puts matters into very good perspective.
Not to mention the sanity savings.
