Yes, I vaguely remembered that it had a short life, but I wasn't there during that time and wouldn't have done it that way anyway. We all moved together and most of that time I traveled solo.That wasn't always the case. There was a time I would always keep the previous KTTW card in my wallet. On one trip I took that one out instead and the kiosk spat out a ticket. Needless to say, on my subsequent trip a few months later, I may have brought some previous cards. That loophole lasted about a year from the time I did that the first time.
