    Colleges have been doing this for years (well, at least 9, based on when I first went to college). We had it at JMU, and at Guilford. It worked well in both places.

    There's no such thing as a cashless society. However, there is such thing as "paperless".

    I hate carrying paper money. I'm more able to be a responsible financial stweard of the money God gave me with with electronic debits. It still irks me that my local mom & pop grocery store will accept debit cards, but Mc Donalds doesn't.

    Sounds similar to the I-Pass of Illinois, and the EZ-Pass of the mid-Atlantic states. Maybe running on the same concept of the Metro-Pass in New York City.

    My suggestion for America: Create a 50 cent paper denomination, then trash the metal coin system altogether. Then round up or down to the nearest 50 cents.
