There is no worse feeling on a hot NYC summer day than hearing your subway start slowing down as you attempt to slide your Metrocard through. And then not going slow enough, failing miserably, and having to wait 15 minutes in Satan’s Sauna for the next train.

I can’t tell you how many subways I’ve missed cause of this exact scenario. I’ve had to hop over or slide under the carousels not because I didn’t have money but because the card wouldn’t read.
It’s 2016 and we’re still using Metrocards? There has to be some easy technology switch where rather than slide you just put it up to a reader like fobs do.
