Oops: New York City subway system makes $250,000 typo3/10/2013
When we first heard there were 80,000 New York City subway maps distributed with a typo in them, all we could picture were confused-looking tourists with fanny packs and upside-down maps frantically waving down taxis for directions. Luckily, the typo has to do with rates, not with rail stops.The New York Transit system sent out the maps with the wrong fares listed, which is especially embarrassing as they issued the maps specifically to reflect a rate change and forgot to change the rates, so now it’s going to cost them $250,000 dollars to correct. (And if they raised the fares then, wow, karma took an express route this time.)
