Barcodes

Recommended Posts

Anyone pay any attention to these barcodes being put into place in the subway cars? They're all located nearby the car number stickers inside the car (number plates on the 160s).

They have been put in every subway car for that matter. You must be talking about this, below 2251

Yea i've noticed them from time to time. I think they're just a way of identifying the train. They're practically on every subway car now, including SIR.

Yep noticed them like 3 weeks ago, originally on the (1) at 181. I thought it was a sticker meaning SMS. But i guess i was wrong when i saw it expand.

I think I also one time on R160, there was (MTA) worker scanning barcode.

Do you know what kind of job they called it?

 

Either an RCI (Road Car Inspector) or the road car maintainer.
