Shortage of Coins in Argentina

I just came across this travel note. The government has been putting millions of dollars of new coins into circulation but coins are still had to get.

It is a real problem in Buenos Aires where riders need coins for the bus and train. In fact, there is a black market on coins.

Because of this, the government is working on an electronic ticketing system for public transportation in Buenos Aires.
