Token Up You can no longer buy a token in New York City to ride the bus or subway. Just Metrocards. I read in today's NY Times that some people are actually upset, which does not surprise me. There are always a few people who don't want change, even one for the better. Curtis Sliwa (radio host/Guardian Angel of Death) said he's going to feel "like less of a man" without them. Gimme a break. People are just inherently stupid like that. Metrocards are lighter to carry, you can buy them at vending machines and you get a discount when you buy multiple rides at once. What's so great about tokens? Having them weigh down your pockets? Mistaking them for nickels? Waiting on a long line to buy one? They'll make nice collector's items, but that's it.
