Take two: MetroCard machines won't accept credit cards for 6 hours this weekend

MTA plans to take MetroCard vending machines offline and unable to process debit and credit cards are back on but this time, they aren't scheduled to last the entire weekend. Last week, the MTA made a last-minute announcement that there would be a "scheduled system upgrade" performed on all machines beginning Friday at 11:45 p.m.
