Can We Use Our Student Metrocards today?

Hey guys,

 

I'm just wondering since some schools are in session today (Catholic, private), that everyone would be able to use their Metrocards as a normal school day today?

 

Thanks,

7-11

The cards themselves are active but you will get a ticket if you get stopped for using a school metrocard when school is not in session.

Does this apply when Public School is closed and the private schools are open?

I know on days with both of them are closed, it's a huge no-no.

Well IDK why they try to use it after 8-9 PM when on the card it shows the times it is valid. Some people are just dumb

No. I had school today, and it wouldn't be fair if I couldn't use my card, now would it? Only one bus driver EVER has doubted me for using my card when public schools were out, but Catholic/private schools were still in. If anything, just say you're going to a school function.

Because at times its still valid. On one occasion I used my school metrocard at 9:40 and it worked, which I believe was due to me having a transfer. tried it again at 9:30 a couple days later and it didn't.

 

Schools were closed because it's BK-QNS Day (I don't know the new name seeing as its citywide now).

Not to mention that the Archdiocese of New York for one would throw a fit if the MTA voided Student MCs based upon the city public school schedule..
