Roosevelt Island Tram Metro Card Machines Not Accepting Credit Cards, Cash Only Until MTA And Verizon Fix Malfunction

A Roosevelt Island resident asked last night:

Tram station mta machines

I wondered if you knew or saw any announcement that all 4 MTA metrocards machines are not accepting cards? Numerous people were stranded on both sides and not one sign or attendant there to help. I have not taken tram since last week but some state this has been going on this weekend?
I asked Roosevelt Island Operating Corp (RIOC) Public Information Officer about the Tram Metrocard machines. Mr Robertson replied today:
Yes, the credit card machine function on the ticket machines at the Tram are not working.

We’re working with the MTA and Verizon to correct the situation. I’ll provide you an update once the problem gets resolved.
This afternoon the Tram Metrocard Machines

were still cash only.
