Home Service Advisories Weekend work affecting MetroCard machines, 10 subway lines

Weekend work affecting MetroCard machines, 10 subway lines

by Benjamin Kabak

There’s a whole slate of weekend work ahead of us, but before we delve in, let’s take a second to discuss MetroCard Vending Machines. From 1 a.m. until 9:30 a.m. at the latest, MetroCard Vending Machines will not take credit or debit cards. The MTA is performing routine maintenance, and any fare transactions will be cash only. This should be great fun for those drunk riders trying to get home without a valid MetroCard. By Saturday morning, the system will be up and running, and Mayor de Blasio can continue to not pay his fares.

Does the F and A/C work mean the Rutgers tunnel is confirmed next up for serious repair?
