  1. Oh man I didn’t even know metro ever had these. These are cool. Too bad they’re being retired soon. I should pick some of these up before they’re no longer sold.

  2. In the late 80s, fare was 85c, but for convenience, one could buy a book of 85c tickets.

  3. I gotta buy me some tokens, as souvenirs, before they’re all gone!

    Back in the day, these were great. Regular bus fare was a dollar, but you could get a bag of ten tokens for $9.
