Did anyone else see signs, literally put up on easels, at your subway station advertising the new EasyPay Express Metrocards?
At Columbus Circle, they had a bunch of them printed up and set up at the main entrance.
In case you don’t know already, the MTA has set up a Metrocard that automatically refills itself when the balance gets low. It’s kind of like an EasyPass for your car. Once your MetroCard balance gets down to $30, it will aautomatically refill itself with $40 more.
For the pay-as-you-go crowd, this is probably a great idea. It will certainly save you time, and you’ll never really have to worry about refilling your card again. I only wish they did the same thing for the monthly unlimited cards. They should have one that automatically renews itself each month.
Anyway, this is the first time I’ve seen the MTA set up these little sign boards to promote a new program. Wonder if it will make a difference.
