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 maximum amount
that may be added using a machine is $80.

The effective fare cost per ride, including the bonus, is $2.62.
