About EasyPay

The EasyPay MetroCard is linked to your credit or debit card, and refills automatically as you use it.

Create an account today, and in about three weeks, you'll receive your new EasyPay MetroCard in the mail. Use it right away and enjoy the benefits.

With EasyPay there's no more waiting in line to buy or refill a MetroCard.

All EasyPay customers have the convenience of using our automated telephone service or easypaymetrocard.com to track their account 24/7. Our Account Service Center specialists are also available to assist you six days a week, except holidays, Monday to Friday, 9 a.m. to 5 p.m., and Saturday, 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. at 1-877-323-RIDE (7433).

Like any other MetroCard, your EasyPay MetroCard has an expiration date. You'll find the date on the back of your card. About one (1) week prior to the expiration date you will receive a replacement card from us. If you have not received your replacement MetroCard by this date, please contact us.

How to decide which payment option is right for you:

 If you choose: Pay-Per-Ride

  • You can ride any subway, local or express bus
  • Open your account with $30
  • Earn a 5% bonus for every $5 added, so your account starts with $31.50
  • Your account replenishes automatically with $30 when your balance falls below $20.

If you choose: 30-Day Unlimited Ride

  • You can ride any subway or local bus, but not express buses
  • Open your account with $112, the same as if you bought it at a booth, vending machine or merchant
  • Like any other 30-Day Unlimited Ride MetroCard, the card is activated when you first use it
  • Near the end of 30 consecutive days from first use, your credit or debit card will be charged $112, and your first use after that will start a new 30-Day time period.  Before this happens though, you will be sent an e-mail to notify you and give you the option to change to Pay-Per-Ride.
  • We automatically replace your expiring MetroCard one week prior to the expiration of your old MetroCard

Enjoy the benefits of both Pay-Per-Ride and Unlimited Ride options

Here’s how it works:

  • You can ride any subway, local or express bus
  • Open your account with $10 with the Pay-Per-Ride option
  • Earn a 5% bonus for every $5 added, so your account starts with $10.50
  • Your account replenishes automatically when your balance falls below $10
  • Your replenishment amount may be increased to cover the number of rides you take during your billing cycle; you will receive a notice informing you of the new replenishment amount
  • You never pay more than $56 in a billing cycle ($56 is half of the $112 cost of a 30-Day Unlimited Ride card).  Your account automatically converts to unlimited rides whenever the required number of subway and/or local bus rides has been fulfilled.  Express bus fares are added to the total of your monthly rides, but do not count towards the unlimited ride conversion per month
  • There are no charges if you are not using your EasyPay MetroCard.
