Metrocard Recycling Projects

Taking public transportation is good for the environment, but used-up Metrocards aren't -unless you find something useful to do with them. The Infrastructurist found nine wacky things people have made out of the cards, including this lovely suit. -via Everlasting Blort

That's how the Oyster card works in London - you have a card and keep recharging it.

That site though - some clever ideas but the webmaster needs to learn about optimising pictures for the web - 600kB for a small pic is absurd.

The problem with the NY metro card is that it is disposable. NY should follow Shanghai's example and adopt a sturdy credit-card-like metro card. The commuter would pay a one time fee for a rechargeable metro card and once 'e is done with it 'e hands in back in for a reimbursement of that one-time charge. In so doing the commuter will be forced to recycle, because it will be part of the transaction.
