The Metropolitan Transportation Authority says commuters who are either 65 years or older or are disabled qualify for a reduced fare MetroCard as part of the city’s “Fair Fares” program.
This announcement comes after the MTA raised fare hikes from $2.75 to $2.90 on Sunday.
They say those eligible to apply for one of these cards will potentially block the blow of increased fare pricing, by reducing the price of riding the subway and bus to $1.45.
Commuters who are eligible for the city's “Fair Fares” program are also able to receive that 50% discount. The group permitted for this deal include people 18-64 years old living in the city with low incomes.
