NYC MetroCard provides murder suspect with alibi
In the past here we've discussed the pros and cons of letting the CTA track your every movement on the system via a Chicago Card and Chicago Card Plus. Not to mention giving the CTA access to your credit card via a Chicago Card Plus.
But a guy in New York City has been released on bail after a MetroCard he used proved his alibi -- and that it would have been difficult if not impossible for him to have committed the murder he was accused of.
The New York Times has that story.
Recycling MTA rail cars -- in ocean reefs. Frankly, I'm not sure what the CTA does with old rail cars. I suspect they cut them up and recycle the scrap metal for cash.
But in New York City, some retired rail cars are being used as a habitat for ocean fish in reefs all along the Atlantic Coast. It's a cool idea.
