@P E Dant,
I would rather have a monthly ticket like I did preCOVID but that doesn't exist in that form any more and since I take two train systems per commute, the monthly card wouldn't have worked on the second half of my trip. So, pay as you go is my technical default but not my preferred one.
Which fictional animals would you wish were real:
Jackalope or Pokemon or Totoro's catbus or unicorns or pegasuses?
