PUBLIC SERVICE ANNOUNCEMENT: Your MetroCard.

This is a message to the fine people of New York City, and specifically those of you who use our mass transit system each and every day. As certainly you know by now, on June 28th our fares were raised. They didn't go up as much as they could have, and they're not destroying three of our subway lines, so we can't be too upset can we? However, here's what you need to know:

If you have already purchased a card at the old prices - say, a 30 day card for $81 dollars through TransitCheck - you MUST begin using it TODAY, JULY 6TH. After today, your card will not be honored by the subway turnstyles. Now, whether or not you will be able to trade in that card for its cash value I have yet to be able to determine.

That is all.
