Re: Watch out if you are using "Mehrfahrtenkarte"

The tickets were intentionally designed this way. The Bernese ticket machines must accept 12 stamp tickets too, and SBB tickets sometimes only have one stamp.
Maybe it's something unique to Bern then, because I can remember on occasion my mehfarhkart taking more than 6 stamps also. I didn't get caught, but noticed it as odd. The 7th date stamp went over the 6th so it was messy and unreadable. But I recall the machine did punch the card like this.

Next time you have a mehrfahrkart that's used up (ie: has allready 6 stamps) try putting it in the machine and see if it takes a 7th or 8th stamp.
