MTA Approves Full-Fare MetroCards For All Students

May 22, 2019 - 1:57 pm

NEW YORK (WCBS 880) — The MTA approved full-fare MetroCards for students across all five boroughs.

Currently, the agency only provides full-fare cards to students who live at least a mile and a half from school.

The other students get half-fare cards, for buses.

The new plan comes four months after the city rolled out its “Fair Fares” program which offers discounted unlimited MetroCards to New Yorkers who already receive benefits throughout the city.
