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.

 

And traditional hole punchers will still be used for tickets purchased from vending machines to show they have been used, as well as for those seat-check tabs indicating a ticket has been checked. They'll also be backup in case of mechanical malfunctions.
