Now, you can use your cell phone to pay for your subway fare on the Lex line. A while back, SUBWAYblogger told you about the latest contactless fare program where you could earn free subway rides. Now, it is going to the next level.
Just look for the little green star symbol at the turnstiles of the Lexington Line. You have to sign up ahead of time, I guess to make sure your phone and billing arrangements are kosher. Once it is up and running, you will be able hold you cellphone over the sensor at the turnstile and walk through. From there, you will be automatically billed.
We would love if there were a monthly unlimited version of the same thing. It would be cool to be able to program your monthly pass into your cellphone so that you could do the same thing. Right now, it only looks like single fares. Anway, we are excited to see how it works out. If anyone has experience with it, please post a comment to let us know how it worked!!
