I travel quite a bit and always find it difficult to navigate different fare systems. The methods to purchase fare cards are different across the country - and even within my own community. I have 17 fare cards in my wallet - each from a different system. Why can't there be consistency in how I buy a ticket, how I use the ticket (swipe or insert), and the ticket itself?
