I never liked that system, because it costs too much and taking that much $ to collect the $ is like driving a lead gasoline tanker. Sometimes simple is far better, less ways to break down, etc. Norbert Weiner didn't make sense to far too many of it, it seems. And now that they're talking about giving free rides to "children" (which means more crime, more damage, etc) why care about some folks getting free rides? I don't think hacker types will be as much of a problem as "the children" already are. And if MUNI wuld stop with nonsense like that tunnel, fire everyone who isn't a driver or mechanic, fares keep rising, there will be more problems with "cheating" when in fact if the CHEATERS IN CHARGE could run MUNI properly, we wouldn't be IN this problem!
