Pay on train

It was late and too cold for May. It took three tries on two turnstiles before the jacked-up card readers recognized my CTA pass and let me in; the always-surly attendant was MIA.

I finally get up to the platform, tired but happy one of the escalators was working and I see this: Pay on train.


I wasn’t sure if that meant I’d have to pay again or if I was about to get robbed. But it was awfully nice of them to warn me.
