Oren’s Reading List: A Look at DC’s Paper Farecard Designs

dcmisc12As of this Sunday, March 6, WMATA will no longer accept paper farecards at its faregates. If you still have a paper farecard, you can trade it in at a farecard machine or Metro sales office over the next few months, but I suspect most of you reading this will prefer to keep them as souvineers. WTOP Radio put together a slideshow of some of the various designs that were used on the front of the farecards over the past 40 years, you can view it by clicking here.

How many of these designs do you remember? Do you still have any DC paper farecards that you do not plan to trade in?  Leave a comment and tell us!
