MTA unveils fare-ly complex MetroCards price system

MTA unveils fare-ly complex MetroCards price system

Here comes the fare hike - and two new oddball MetroCards.

 

The MTA is rolling out a 10-trip, pay-per-ride MetroCard - with a peculiar price: $17.39

 

And the agency will soon start selling a 30-trip pay-per-ride with a $52.17 price tag.

 

The move is intended to provide an easy-math option for riders wanting to buy cash-based bonus MetroCards with a specific amount of trips - and no spare change in value.

 

Another reason: MetroCard vending machines can provide only limited types of change.

 

But one transit worker dubbed the options "wacko.They just look odd."

Now, the MTA has a fairly simple fare system, but with the confusion and loose change they're about to implement will make NJT's fare system look a little better! (Trust me, NJT's fare system ain't something to go "w00t!" about but one gets use to it)
