  • I don't know about anywhere else, but in nyc, the dollar coins (sacajewea or Susan B.) are an instant sign to everyone that you've just used a ticket machine at grand central or penn station. I'm wholly unsurprised that you have encountered them in a transit situation.
    • The MBTA buses and trains used to claim that they wouldn't accept dollar bills. They never enforced this, except for the occasional and rare power-hungry driver/conductor.

      At some point a long time ago I noticed that they added "Golden dollar accepted here" stickers to the coin collecters. I've seen one or two people drop a golden dollar in, but I don't pay that much attention.

      The event described above is the _only_ time I've gotten something other than brass tokens and dollars back a human or machine MBTA token vendor.
