Transportation Tokens

Transportation tokens are still in use for many municipal bus and rail lines. They were each good for one fare, and were sold in quantity to passengers. Their use eliminated the need for operators to carry and make change, allowing passengers to board and disembark rapidly. The reference work on this type of token is the “Atwood-Coffee Catalog of United States and Canadian Transportation Tokens" published by the American Vecturist Association.
