Keyping it all together.

After waiting at the bus stop for 30 minutes in the cold only to realize that I forgot my pass, I realized today that I need a way to carry my various keys (car, apartment, parent's house, work, PO box, garage) and cards (bus pass, student ID, work ID, gym card) with me in an organized way.

I currently have a clear plastic card holder that covers about 1/2 of the card (lengthwise) and leaves the magnetic strip exposed for swiping. I used this to swap out my bus pass or student ID, depending on whether I'm at school (need ID to access building) or commuting, but the issue is that it only fits 1 card at a time, and it's on a ridiculously long lanyard.
I'd love a keychain? cardholder? storing device thing? that I can throw into my backpack or purse and keeps all my important keys and cards together, but also makes it easy for me to access them when I'm in a hurry, in 20 below weather, wearing gloves AND mittens. The cards have to be accessible for both sliding/swiping (like a credit card) and touch (for the bus), which is why I've scrapped just keeping them in my wallet. Help me figure out a solution! What do the organized commuters and key holders of MeFi use? Bonus points for stylish/not ugly!
