​Jump to your question:

Can I pay for another person with my metrocard?

Yes, you can take other people on your card. Their fare will be charged as a full cash fare ($4.00 Adult, $2.00 Child fare), so it is cheaper for each person to have their own metrocard. This cash fare will provide only one free transfer within 2 hours.

How do I look after my metrocard?

Like other electronic cards, your metrocard has a magnetic strip that runs around the edges of the card. If the magnetic strip is damaged the card reader won’t be able to scan it.

To extend the life of your card we recommend you avoid:

  • Bending or flexing your card
  • Punching holes in your card
  • Snapping your card
  • Flicking your card against objects
  • Dropping your card on a surface or the ground
  • Cutting your card
  • Peeling plastic from your card

Do I need an online account for my Metrocard?

No, you don't need an online account to have a Metrocard. However, setting up an online account allows you to easily check your balance and top up online.
