"There are many apples on the tree, but only one Big Apple". The old saying is very true when we talk about New York - America's Big Apple. We can offer you a cheap, fast and easy way to see it all. Buy a MetroCard at any subway station and the key to the city is in your hands.
MetroCards can be bought on a pay-per-ride basis ($1.50 per ride) or an unlimited ride basis. With pay-per-ride, you get 11 rides for the price of ten. These tickets can be used by groups of up to four people. With unlimited ride MetroCards, you can get a 30-day card for $63, a 7-day card for $17, or a one-day Fun Pass for only $7. These tickets are not transferable.
