Just press Calculate below if you're starting with a zero balance.

Note that MetroCard Vending Machines (MVMs) will only allow you to add amounts that are multiples of 5 cents. For this reason, only totals that are divisible by 5 cents are given here.

The average fare for a pay-per-ride card with the bonus is $2.48, an increase of ten cents.
