MetroCards on sale in various communities.

June
24

To ride the Bee-Line bus or New York City’s subways and buses, it pays to have The Card. That’s MetroCard. And you can buy them at the MetroCard van that makes rounds through Westchester. Here’s the schedule through September, just announced by the Westchester County Department of Transportation:

JULY TO SEPT SCHEDULE OF METROCARD VAN IN WESTCHESTER COUNTY

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.
