NYC MetroCard Bonus Calculator


Fare Hike Calculator

This calculator is for the current fare, in effect since March 22, 2015.
The base fare is $2.75 with a bonus of 11% (with a $5.50 minimum).

This calculator tells you how much to add to get an even number of rides.
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 $1 fee for new cards is not included; add $1 to your result if you are buying a new card.

The effective fare cost per ride, including the bonus, is $2.48.
