Outdoor Port Authority ConnectCard kiosks malfunctioned Thursday in the frigid temperatures, according to authority officials.

The Port Authority said via Twitter that most of the outdoor machines were offline, and technicians would be out to make repairs.

Riders who were unable to load their cards can ride free until the issue is resolved.
