You can tell it is a Canadian withdrawing money from the ATM machine because when the money comes out, he/she thanks the machine...

Seattle is thinking about how to set up fare collection for future light rail. It is considering adopting Vancouver BC Canada's honor system for riders paying for the skytrain. In Vancouver there are no turnstiles, no conductors collecting tickets. Riders pay for their tickets on the platform and ride the train to whereever they want to...several were interviewed in the article I read recently, some admitted to keeping their money, others stated they wouldn't think of not paying. Officially, the management of the skytrain explained that the cost to have conductors and collect tickets was many millions of dollars more than the estimated three million they lose on non payment.

So, Bobs your uncle.
