Ticket To Ride

The ticket machines on Metro-North’s New York-bound platform are quick and convenient.

According to one “06880” reader, they’re also a death trap.

She writes: “2 ticket machines are positioned so closely to the open track that if the line exceeds 2 people (as it often does), the 3rd person stands at the edge of the track. Quick purchase of a ticket is also impeded because sunshine obscures the screen.”

She proposes a “no-brainer” solution: moving the machines inside the waiting room.

Oh yeah — one more thing. Our safety-first writer says, “Directly adjacent to the ticket machines is a high-voltage pillar.”

All the more reason to have that 1st cup of coffee before you get to the station!
