Re: Transfer mystery

Thinking back, and trying to imagine the driver's perspective, there were also probably some physical characteristics that would make a transfer look out of place; for instance, the paper was longer depending on how much later in the day it was good for (so if one passenger's transfer was shorter than most of the ones you were getting, then even before looking at it you could sense a problem).

Periodically as a passenger I remember getting a whole-length transfer (good through 6a.m. the next morning) randomly, even if it wasn't nighttime yet. Since you couldn't count on getting one of those in advance though, it didn't have much practical impact.

There were no tiers between midnight and 6a.m. so if you traveled late enough at night, your transfer could be good until the morning. Perhaps one of the very few disadvantages of losing paper transfers.
