[UPDATE BELOW] If you're planning on refilling your MetroCard this morning using a credit or debit card like the resident of some 21st century metropolis, you may be in for a bit of disappointment: The MTA says they're experiencing "city wide" problems with the automated vending machines. And a happy Monday to you, sir/madame!

We reached out to the MTA to find out more about this issue, and to get a sense on when it will be resolved, but for now you may have to scrounge up some cash to feed the machine in order to obtain a MetroCard. Remember subway tokens?

Pretty much. There are have also been delays on the E, A, M, G, 4, 5, and 6 lines this morning.

UPDATE 9:30 a.m.: An MTA spokesperson says the glitch is a "Verizon issue" affecting approximately 100 stations, and they are working on fixing it now.

UPDATE 3:44 p.m.: It's fixed, everything is working perfectly now!
