My cousin Adam shared this with me, “How Memorizing “$19.05” Can Help You Outsmart the MTA ” It is some handy advice, but it is a sad that I need to use some sort of work around to “outsmart the MTA” so I can access my money. Still, it could be worse. Below is the farecard for the DC Metro that they used since the 1970’s but are soon phasing out. I’ve got a bunch of these with 40 cents on them. I should really look into seeing if I can get my money back but then I would have to get rid of my Panda friends.
