Fair Fares NYC subway and bus discount customers use a Fair Fares NYC MetroCard. All Fair Fares NYC MetroCards come ready to have time and/or value added. When you add time to your Fair Fares NYC MetroCard, you will be charged half the current price for the 7-Day (Weekly) or 30-Day (Monthly) Unlimited Ride options. When you add value, you will choose the amount you add to your card and half the current fare will be deducted for each swipe.
Access-A-Ride customers do not use a Fair Fares NYC MetroCard – their discounts are applied automatically!
