The NY Straphangers campaign as some interesting ideas about how to change the MetroCard fare system used on New York City mass transit. Currently many low-income riders cannot afford to pay the $63 for a monthly pass! Discounted bi-weekly passes would address this issue! (More suggestions on their site.)
Nearly one-half (45%) of lower-income riders surveyed who use a 7-day pass said that the cost of a 30-day card is a “very important” reason for not buying a 30-day pass. A bi-weekly pass priced at $31.50—one-half the cost of the monthly pass—makes the savings of the current 30-day pass more accessible to lower-income riders
