Sign Up For Reduced Fare Passes
MTA New York City Transit announced that the MetroCard bus and van will be making scheduled stop around Queens this month.
The MetroCard bus and van stops at senior citizen centers, shopping centers and along major bus routes in order for customers to handle their MetroCard needs, including applying for or refilling reduced-fare Metro- Cards, buying or refilling regular MetroCards or asking MetroCard-related questions.
Seniors and people with disabilities may apply for the reduced-fare MetroCard on the bus; they will need photo ID, and seniors 65 years old and up must also show proof of age.
Customers may want to explore the EasyPay Reduced Fare payment option, which lets customers link their credit or debit cards to their reducedfare MetroCards for automatic refills.
