If your card stops scanning after 90 days from when you bought your smartlink card, they will make you buy another $5 card to get any balance that is left on your card. If you ask for your balance in quickcards, they refuse to give you anything.

I got my SmartLink Card for free back when they were handing them out. They were also free online at the PA website. I actually got two of them, one as a backup in case I ever lose the other one.

I’ve had to go into the train station to buy a Quick Card at a NJ transit machine.

I had free smartlink card. It worked twice then never again and they wouldn’t replace it

Total rip off to have to pay 5 bucks for the card, cause you know they cost less than a buck to make

[quote comment=”123969″]It says “machine sales” end. I assume I can still buy the 40-ride Quick Card from the Hudson News guy at 33rd St station.[/quote]

There has also been no word of discontinuing the Quick Card for those of us who have one mailed to us each month, with payments automatically deducted pretax from our paychecks.

What about people who are just visiting and want a couple of trips? Sickening[/quote]

They can buy a MTA metrocard. That works on the PATH too, and it’s still cheaper than a trip on the subway.
