All aboard for hi-tech train ticket


Metro-North Railroad riders will soon be able to buy tickets onboard trains using credit and debit cards - the first program of its kind anywhere, officials said Wednesday.


The railroad is outfitting all of its conductors with hand-held ticket machines and receipt printers.


Riders will still have to continue paying cash for the next three or four months before the credit/debit program kicks in.
