MetroCards: Come and get them.

September
30

The MetroCard van will make its rounds starting Oct. 19 for anyone who wants to buy the cards used on Westchester and New York City buses and the city subways. Here’s the county press release, complete with dates, times and locations for the van:

The full-service MetroCard van will make its rounds in Westchester to assist riders interested in purchasing MetroCards.
Staffed by MTA New York City Transit Authority and Westchester County Department of Transportation employees, the van is a “one-stop shop” and is equipped to assist bus riders with all their MetroCard business. Riders will be able to buy a regular MetroCard, apply for a Reduced-Fare MetroCard if they are 65 and older or have qualifying disabilities and refill their existing MetroCards.
MetroCard is the automated regional fare collection system managed by the Metropolitan Transportation Authority.  For more information on the MetroCard Van and other MetroCard locations, call the Bee-Line Hotline at (914) 813-7777.
