New York ‘s MTA system has long been a contention within communities across all 5 boroughs. But now, the city and the MTA have announced that the “Fair Fare” program has now been extended to at least 800,000 more residents. The program is meant to help moderate to low income New Yorkers afford their metro rides more (and presumably reduce the shocking and offensively high number of arrests over $2.75.)

As of Monday, the programme has opened up via the city’s Human Resources Online Portal (and no you do not have to be a regular benefit recipient to apply.)

From what we’ve discovered, here are the basic qualifications.

  • Are between (and including) the ages of 18 and 64;
  • Are in a household that meets the income guidelines for the Fair Fares NYC program;
  • Are not currently participating or eligible to participate in any Metropolitan TransitAuthority (MTA) discount program; and,
  • Are not receiving full carfare from the Department of Social Services/Human ResourcesAdministration (DSS/HRA) or any other NYC agency.

This programme slashes the prices of metro fares by 50% (including weeklys/etc.)

People can literally apply via the online portal and get a decision in seconds if their profile qualifies. It’ll take about 2 weeks to get it in the mail, and, it’ll have your name and photograph on it.
