Fee applies to each new MetroCard purchased at station booth, vending machine or commuter rail station.
The MTA charges a $1.00 "new card fee" for each new MetroCard purchased at a MetroCard Vending Machine or station booth, or commuter rail station.
- Avoid this fee by keeping and refilling your current MetroCard at any MVM or station booth.
- You will be issued a new MetroCard at no charge if your card is expiring or damaged.
- The new $1.00 charge will not apply to a MetroCard bought at an out-of-system vendor, reduced fare customers (seniors and customers with disabilities), users of EasyPayXpress cards, transit benefit organization customers who get their MetroCard directly from employers or their benefit providers, and customers who purchase a combination railroad/MetroCard ticket.
