I just received a very large document from WMATA: The original 2003 contract with Cubic for Smartrip upgrades. Unfortunately, it’s about 300 pages and all in paper. I have a flatbed scanner but there’s no way I’m going to be able to scan the pages to PDF by hand in any reasonable amount of time.
Are there any readers out there who have access to a high-speed scanner that will scan to PDF or some other decent format? I would be forever grateful, and you would be able to examine the document first-hand. I guess that’s a plus for some people.
Alternatively, if anyone knows of a service that will scan large documents to PDF, I could pass the hat around here and get the fee together through donations.
WMATA declined to provide the document electronically because it had been redacted by hand using a black marker.
I’ll write up an article about the document, but I did want to be able to share it with you all so you can see what I’m talking about.
