Subway officials are working with Trump's inaugural committee to produce a commemorative sleeve to hold Inauguration Day fare cards. The team failed to give Metro a photo to be put on fare cards.

STEVE INSKEEP, HOST:

Good morning. I'm Steve Inskeep. Washington, D.C., did not vote for Donald Trump. It heavily favored Hillary Clinton. But D.C. commuters can travel with Trump. Metro, the subway system, created fare cards with President Obama's picture when he was inaugurated. This time around, the cards do not feature Trump's image. Metro says he didn't respond to a request for a photo. But after a protest, Metro says riders will be able to obtain a Trump sleeve to hold the card, which does have his image. It's MORNING EDITION.
