Published 1:30 pm, Sunday, January 2, 2011
For the second time in three days, the ticket-machines at all Metro-North Railroad stations has crashed.
The machines, which malfunctioned most of Friday and early Saturday, are again rejecting credit- and debit-card purchases of tickets Sunday.
Railroad officials reported about 12:30 p.m. Sunday that tickets will have to be purchased with cash at local stations or onboard trains.
The recurrence of the malfunction is being blamed on the railroad's "communications provider."
