MTA: Help

We Get Email

Dear Editor:

Who wants to spend the money and time to travel back and forth and pay for something you should be able to get at your local train station? I realize a cut back for services because of COVID may have been necessary but not any longer for seniors!

For some other reason, the A line train stations in this area no longer provide a transfer of the balance on an expiring Senior Metro Card to the new Senior Metro Card.

Give the ability back to the individual stations to provide this service or provide service via a Metro Card van that should be made available in Ozone Park, Howard Beach, or the Rockaways.

When I called 511 as instructed, I was told they only do it at three stations:

Flushing Meadow, 74th Street, Roosevelt Ave and Jamaica /Archer train stations.

Plus, I was told the Metro Card Van is no longer being sent to Howard Beach - Ozone Park or Rockaway. It does go to Rego park and Forest Hills -- why not here too? Who can fix this?
