A public transit system
A public transit system that still uses metal tokens and paper transfers is finally moving into the era of debit cards and pay-by-cellphone technology.
After years of promises, passengers in Philadelphia can see evidence of a new smart card system.
Computerized kiosks, turnstiles and fare boxes have popped up at stations and on vehicles operated by the Southeastern Pennsylvania Transportation Authority.
Officials will start field testing the SEPTA Key payment system later this month. They hope bus, trolley and subway riders will be using it in 2015.
Philadelphia is among the last major transit systems in North America to still use metal tokens. Chicago stopped selling them in 1999, followed by New York in 2003 and Boston in 2006.
Toronto also uses tokens.

I have had a key since day one. I love it. the convenience factor is excellent and the ability to immediately reload it online is excellent.
That freaked me out when I visited Philly for the first time in late 2015. I got confused trying to figure out how to use the tokens at the stations. And the fare boxes on the buses and trolleys that take credit cards really freaked me out. Definitely different from what I'm used to doing in Los Angeles and San Francisco.
new head aches to replace old ones...
They're not the last, they still have TTC
Tokens are cooler
