$19 for a 7-day metro pass. It’s for tourists: 2 trips per day x 5 days = $15 per week for public-curious regular commuter.

    Man, this is great. If you ride the bus regularly you know what it’s like to be sitting on the bus at a stop while the driver and some tourist do their routine. It’s called “Surly, indifferent driver vs. hapless tourist confused about fare”. Sometimes it’s comical, but more often than not it just makes the trip that much longer. Hopefully this will cut down these episodes and let me enjoy my other favorite buscapades like “decipher the language of the crazy lady next to me” or “let’s see just how many people we can get on this S bus”.

    Yeah it’s ridiculous. And what’s up with $1.50, no cash, no change. I know it’s the bus but damn, it’s 2007. Where’s the goddamned card swipe, MDTransit?!
