Starting this Monday morning Metro Transit is changing the way it handles ticket validation for MetroLink trains.
Here are three big things riders need to know about the new system.
First, vending machines won’t automatically print the expiration time on tickets or passes; you’ll have to do that separately.
Which leads to number two, the new system will make it much easier to buy tickets in advance and not use them right away.
And Third, Metro Spokesperson Diane Williams says you really don’t want to forget to validate your ticket.
