    Why is WMATA trying to get rid of cash surcharge on buses? I think the change to $2 is a good thing. It should hopefully reduce the load time a little further by encouraging two single bills instead of lots of change. The surcharge also encourages Smartrip use and makes it simpler for tourists. I would like to see the Circulator match the proposed WMATA fare structure.
