The only charliecards that they will accept are the ones with the zone number of the monthly or daily pass commuter rail. So yes, charliecards is an acceptable form of payment.

Instead of putting fare gates on the GLX, like they should have, they decided to instead put them where they are not needed or wanted at all whatsoever. Please make it make sense.Unless I misunderstand things, these new gates are not collecting fares, as the ones on the subway entrances do, so no one is evading any fare by cheating.

Which makes little sense because if they really want to fix that issue the best thing to do would be to tell/train conductors to collect all tickets on the train, like they are supposed to.
As far as I am concerned, these gates exist for no legitimate purpose. They only inconvenience the traveling public, and ought to be put out of operation.Exactly.

Also as I see this GLX has nothing to do with this since there is 2 completely different fare systems as of now and run by 2 different agencies.
