You can now swipe in using the Emergency / Slam Gate at many stations

Posted by R46 5636 on Wed Nov 24 21:40:27 2021

The slam gate is now an accessible entry at many stations. Very useful when carrying something that's too much of a hassle to use the turnstile with. New signs have been updated on the gates that read "AutoGate" and upon fare payment the gate automatically self opens.

Kind of interesting dipping my card like a bus farebox and a door opens rather than a turnstile. Very useful indeed.

Nothing really new. There is a special MetroCard for those with physical disabilites. This card is when used in the box next to the slam gate (on either side) will cause the door to open.

I only saw this in action once.

There will obviously be an OMNY card ro eventually replace that MetroCard.

What is new is that now everybody can use the gate in such a way.

The senior discount card does not work in it. I tried it when exiting one time with my bike, I think on the way back from my photo session in The Bronx. I just lifted the bike over the turnstile like I always do. I guess even a senior citizen doesn't get any special treatment if he's still riding a road bike.

Everything works on it now. That is the change being mentioned in the original post. It is a new situation as of about a month ago.

They gave away enough free rides from turnstile jumpers what's moving them along faster going to hurt?

You donít seem to get it . The progressives in charge of our state want to bankrupt everything to rebuild in the way of their ideology .

People avoiding the fare are simply vomiting crimes of necessity due to systematic racism
.

So by making it easier , you are fighting systematic racism .

Think Iím kidding , read the quotes about how stealing tvs after Katrina was a crime of necessity .

Thatís the reason the DA is not going after crooks clearing out the shelves at your local pharmacy

Everything works on it now.

Not clear to me how. I have a senior Metrocard. It deducts $1.35 for each ride I take. The MTA hasn't sent me an OMNI card to replace it.

Heís saying that the auto gate will now work for all MetroCards. Before that, only certain kinds of cards worked.

Ah, thank you. Somehow I mistook the post to be a reference to OMNY cards.

That must have been a long time ago because now all emergency exit gates open without any card and no longer set off an alarm.

For entering through the gates, every card now works. It used to be only specific cards for those with disabilities that required such.
