Eyes on the “Street”: Spokker Grabs Shots of the Fare Gates
Card reader at Union Station. All Photos: Spokker Jones/FlickrOver the weekend regular commenter Spokker posted some pictures from his Flickr feed of the fare gate installation at Union Station and Wilshire/Normandie. Spokker also shot a surprise picture for us. Apparently Metro is also experimenting with screens that update bus arrival times at some stations. I have an email to Metro staff and we'll update that story as soon as I hear news. In the meantime, you can see many of Spokker's fare gate shots in one place after the jump.
Standing alone in Union Station. They look more like obstacles than a gating system at this point.

Installation looks pretty involved.
And here it is....the bus arrival screen!
