This is one app that will pay for itself in the first use! Tired of ending up with Metrocards that have a balance, but not enough for a ride? Unless you can calculate a 7% bonus in your head, figuring out the right amount to add to your card to get down to $0 is a challenge. Instead of throwing that card away, let MTA Free Ride solve that challenge and save you money! Enter your current card balance (or 0.00 for a new card) and we'll let you know how much to add so that you don't end up giving away your change to the MTA! The last swipe on your card will be within four cents of zero (since the MTA only lets you add value in five cent increments).
