Re: Fast lane for Gatekeeper?
That's not really what I was saying.
Single rider lines are designed to pair singles, with odd-numbered groups, ie groups of 1,3,5 etc. When an odd number group reaches the platform attendant, the attendant should pair a single rider with one of the people in the odd numbered group. Doing what you suggested would slow the regular line considerably, cause then what is to stop me and my friend from going up the single rider line, and then getting to ride together?
The problem is the platform attendants are often comatose, and pay no attention to the single rider line, or fail to query the size of each group so that a single may be paired with them.
It's great in theory,but poorly implemented in reality.
