Will there be a stop at the Baraq Hussein Obama Presidential Library and Choom Gang Museum?

Sure, but the costs for those stations haven’t been figured in yet. Undoubtedly they will have to include some kind of artistic vanity piece for the sake of aesthetics and whatnot, and given the “historic” nature, these will certainly be overpriced more than on other similar systems.

What’s even worse is that this system will most likely have that absurd proof-of-payment system (abbreviated POP) where you have to buy tickets but can only guess when an inspector will show up; more often than not, there aren’t any inspectors and lots of people ride for free, which results in this manner of fare collection having the lowest fare recovery ratio (under 20 percent for the most part), even against subways (with turnstiles), buses (where the bus driver collects fares) and commuter rail (with conductors).
