Today is the day that metro and light rail ticket prices go up. What was once an RMB 3 ticket to Jodi's house is now an RMB 4 ticket. Let's compare what this means when I load up my value-storage card with RMB 100 (about USD 12):

Before: 33 one-way trips, and RMB 1 left over for hot, crispy youtiao on a cold winter day.

After: 25 one-way trips, and no youtiao for a cold, shivering, miserable, lonely Micah.

See what I mean? Painful!
