Metro Card Van To Visit Rockaway

City Council Member Joseph P. Addabbo, Jr. announced that the MTA-New York City MetroCard Program Van will be visiting Rockaway Monday, March 4th to assist residents in applying for and using reduced fare and full fare MetroCards.

Addabbo said that on Monday, March 4th, the MetroCard Van would be parked in front of his Rockaway Park office at 92-03 Rockaway Beach Boulevard between 10 A.M. and Noon

The council member said he had requested that the MTA make the van available to his constituents, many of whom are senior citizens. "The MTA was very cooperative," said Addabbo.

Senior citizens only need to bring proof of their age and a valid photo ID. The MetroCard Vans are express-service mobile units where customers can add value to any MetroCards and purchase MetroCards. MTA staff aboard the van will be available to assist senior citizens, age 65 and over, and individuals with qualifying disabilities in obtaining their reduced-fare MetroCards and guiding them through the application process. In addition the staff will also be able to answer any MetroCard related questions.

"I hope that many of my Rockaway constituents will come out and take advantage of the MTA MetroCard Van," said Addabbo.
