MetroCard Van Coming To Howard Beach and Ridgewood

In an effort to provide more accessible service for disabled and senior residents, New York City Transit offers a mobile outreach program designed especially to serve their transportation needs.

The van will set up on Wednesday, December 29, at the Howard Beach Senior Center located at 156-45 84th Street from 10 AM – Noon and then at the Ridgewood Older Adult Center located at 59-14 70th Avenue from 1PM - 3PM.

The MetroCard Mobile Sales staff will assist residents 65 and over and disabled customers in applying for Reduced Fare MetroCards. All customers may purchase and/or refill MetroCards; report a lost or stolen card; or have a damaged MetroCard replaced on-site.

Seniors applying for a reduced-fare MetroCard will need to bring at least 2 types of identification to the MetroCard bus: Medicare Card, Social Security Card, Birth Certificate, Driver License, or Non-Driver Li- cense.
