“Dear PoPville,

Found this on the ground in the CVS on Mass Ave. Any idea when metro stopped using tokens?”

Hmm, did metro rail, bus and streetcar all take tokens. I know the old streetcar did but I didn’t know bus and/or rail did too? Can any history buffs/WMATA employees/old school peeps school us? Either way, very cool find!

Ed. Note: If you have a photo of a neat find you’ve stumbled on please send an email to princeofpetworth(at)gmail.com thanks. Please let me know where you found it too.
