Using your metroCARD

The time on a Visitor or Cruise ship metroCARD starts the first time you validate it on a bus, train, tram or at platform gates. When you validate your card on a vehicle, the machine will display when your card expires.

You can recharge your metroCARD (in $5 blocks) and use it at regular metroCARD fare prices if you'd like to use it for more days.
