• Could someone help me about these fares? I don't know how much is which one, but I know there is a weekly and monthly unlimited card for subways. PLZ? :)

    $104 monthly $29 weekly and $2.25 if you buy a $10 card. $2.50 is the standard fare if you don't buy any of the deals I mentioned.

    Ok, this is the deal.

    - A single ride is $2.25 to go any where one way with a Metrocard.
    - Its $29 for a weekly pass that allows you 7 days of unlimited commuting for one person. More than one person can use it, but theres a 22 minutes time wait if you the other person wants to take the train/bus at the same stop.
    - A monthly pass is $104 and has the same benefits as a weekly metrocard, except for the extra time.


    If you're traveling a lot (at least taking the train twice a day), I recommend the weekly or monthly unlimited depending on your stay here.

    Gluck!

    I have another doubt..

    Metrocards are good for all subways and regular local buses. The unlimited metrocards are not good for express buses - they have flashing blue lights and as a tourist there isn't much need to take them so you should be good.

    Also if you buy more than $10 on a pass you get 7% more free (so 10=10.70, 20=21.40 etc)

    With this discount, for the monthly the cutoff is approximately around 49 rides before it become worth it (I think)
