Currently the only way to check your balance and see how many fares you have left is at a turnstile or a fare machine. As New Yorkers there have been too many times when we swipe our MetroCard just to find out that we do not have any fares left.
With NYC MetroCard Balance Tracker app you can track your balance before you head out and see in advance the amount of fares you have left so you know when to refill your MetroCard.
How the NYC MetroCard Balance Tracker app works?
The NYC MetroCard Balance Tracker app features automatic and manual balance tracking options.
Step 1: add a new metrocard at the apps home dashboard
Step 2: select the auto option
Step 3: enter the balance of your card (the amount after the bonus)
Step 4: select the days and the amount of times you ride each day
Step 6: enter a card nickname
Step 7: click save
Based on your card settings the NYC MetroCard Balance Tracker app will keep track of your fares by reducing the balance amount according to the rides you had setup to ride that day. To keep accurate tracking record, we will send you a daily notification of the amount of rides the app has swiped for you so you can add or deduct fares if you had a change in schedule on that day.
Step 1: Add a new metrocard at the apps home dashboard.
Step 2: Select the manual option.
Step 3: Enter the balance of your card (the amount after the bonus).
Step 4: Enter a card nickname.
Step 5: Click save.
The NYC MetroCard Balance Tracker app will keep track of your fares by allowing you to "swiped" on you card in the app everytime you ride MTA. The app will then reduce your metrocard balance and update the amount of fares you have left.
With NYC MetroCard Balance Tracker app you can add multiple cards to keep track on your personal or business metrocards.
The app also features a notification system which will alert you everytime your balance is low so you know when to refill your MetroCard.
Never swipe an empty metrocard again. Enjoy riding NYC MTA!
