I looked it up and you're right... that's crazy - so what's the point of punching tickets on the platform? It seems like CityTicket is the only thing not valid for Mets-Willets Point, can there really be that many people even using that? Or does it have something to do with the number of punches on the ticket and people potentially getting half a free ride or something? I don't really know what those punches mean.

Can one of the mods delete my previous post in this thread? I don't wanna confuse people, SORRY!

My guess is perhaps because the train can get so crowded that it might be impossible to go down the aisles and check for the tickets on the train itself.

Speaking off too crowded to check tickets. I had a job interview in Manhattan on St Pats of all days. I was kicking myself for buying a round trip ticket because the train (9:51 out of Massapequa IIRC) was so insanely packed they didn't check the ticket, so could have gotten a free ride if I bought just a one way ticket, since it was put to waste since I didn't go back to the city for a few weeks after that.

Some days chicken, some days feathers.

Hard to predict something like that.
