The 3-Day Grace Period for Muni Fast Passes
May Be Over - Is Still Around For Now..
There's word on The Twitter this morning that the 3 day grace period for Fast Passes is no more, and that if you're without one come May 1st and don't pay up the fare, you're gonna get a nice big ticket.
Which is interesting because I hadn't seen or heard any information at all on this subject, beyond today's TwitterRumor. I've put in an email to the MTA's Judson True to find out what's going on and will post here and on Twitter when I find out. But realistically, if someone like me doesn't know, how do they expect others to know?
That said, if MUNI and the MTA are going to make that big of a change, you think they'd do a better job of informing the public, than a casual tweet on the 29th of April. Otherwise one could argue they were hoping people didn't know so they could nail them with a nice big fine.
UPDATE: Word is that despite the fact the passes no longer have the wording, 311, and the MTA indicate that in fact, your 3 day period is still in place. However, as some have pointed out, don't be surprised if at some point a change is announced to close that budget gap.
