Square subway ticket

Some countries and regions in order to better take the subway paper recycling, they will make subway bills into a round cake shape as a sliver coin size. Most of the passengers will have some change when buying one-way ticket. Due to the size and shape of sliver coin are very similar to the subway ticket, when passengers reach to the end and check out, people will hard to distinguish the coins and the tickets in their pocket, or need to identify the tickets through turn over the pockets. So , if made the ticket's shape into square, people will easily identify the coins and the tickets through the touch.
