TRAVEL TIPS
  • For MTA New York City Transit subways and buses, you pay your fare with MetroCard.  The fare to ride is $2.75 and MetroCard provides free transfers between buses and subways.  Purchase Pay-Per-Ride or Unlimited-Ride cards from MetroCard Vending Machines. Note: Children 44 inches tall and under ride for free.

  • All Buses accept MetroCard or exact change (coins only), except Select Bus Service (SBS).  For SBS, you must have a paper ticket to ride. Get your ticket at the bus stop. Pay your fare at either a MetroCard Fare Collector or Coin Fare Collector machine. Important: Get your MetroCard before you get to the bus stop.

  • Buy Before Boarding for the Metro-North Railroad and Long Island Rail Road.  Metro-North Railroad and Long Island Rail Road fares require separate ticket purchase at Ticket Offices or Machines. Ticket transactions on-board Metro-North Railroad and Long Island Rail Road trains are cash-only and subject to additional fees.

  • AirTrain fares are in addition to subway and bus fares.
