So I'm on the downeaster, and as the conductor came through the BC car (remember, its only about 15 seats b/c half of it is the cafe car and its 2-1 seating) he did two random ID checks when taking tickets. I have never seen this before. Is this new? Is this being rolled out on all the routes? Just curious. This actually doesn't bother me as they were just matching the name on your ID to the name on your ticket. FWIW, I was one of the ones selected and I had no problem pulling out my license to show the conductor.
