How long does a transfer last?
You can transfer for free between local bus routes and local buses and subways. (The transfer gets encoded on your MetroCard. You’ll swipe it again, but you won’t be charged.) Transfers are good within two hours of when you paid the fare.
How does a wave card work?
With The Wave, instead of buying passes in advance, you earn them as you go. All you have to do is ride! Every time you pay your fare, your tap goes toward a one-day pass, 7-day pass or 31-day pass. After paying for two trips in a day, you’ll earn a day pass and the rest of your rides are free until the next day.
How many times can you use a transfer?
There is no real “limit” to how many times someone can transfer universities. The main issue would be the financial aid piece, and transferring credits.
Do you get a transfer with OMNY?
With OMNY, you can use your own contactless card or smart device to ride with the MTA. OMNY supports a full-fare, pay-per-ride option now, including free transfers. Additional fare options will be available during future phases of the rollout, including reduced fares, student fares, special programs, and more.
What happens if you forget to tap off Presto?
If you forget to tap off at the end of your trip, the fare to the furthest destination on the line you travelled on is automatically debited from your card balance the next time you tap your card. For more information contact GO Transit at 1-888-438-6646.
