My SubwayCard FAQs: I’ve noticed that many of you have questions about the My SubwayCard program, so I wanted to take this opportunity to answer some of the most frequently asked questions I get from riders. If you still have more questions, please stop by one of our MTA Information booths; we’d be happy to help you!
How do I get a My SubwayCard?
The My SubwayCard is a reloadable card that can be used for transit on the Metro system and MARTA. The easiest way to get a My Subway card is by visiting the nearest MARTA Station, Transit Link Store, or participating Kroger store with a MARTA grocery pickup location. You can also order your card online here and have it mailed right to your door!
How do I reload my card?
The easiest way to reload your card is by purchasing a refill card from any NYC Transit vending machine. You can also go online and buy a prepaid or virtual card or call the customer service number. If you are in New York City and need a refill immediately, you can stop into any station booth with cash and your active MetroCard.
How do I check my balance?
There are a few ways to check your balance. You can sign into your account and view your balance on the homepage, call customer service, and they will tell you how much money is left on your card, or head to any MetroCard vending machine and swipe your card to see the remaining balance. The vending machine will accept if you need more money on the card for what you want to purchase.
How do I use my My SubwayCard?
It’s easy! When you enter and exit the subway, tap your card on a reader, and we’ll automatically deduct the fare if you use your My SubwayCard at a turnstile and have a negative balance. The reader will flash red with an error message. You’ll need to load more value onto your card before using it again.
