MetroCard Van to visit the Rockaways and Maspeth this October

Those who need assistance with certain MetroCard services will be able to visit the MetroCard when it comes to State Senator Joseph P. Addabbo, Jr.’s district this October.

On Wednesday, October 28, the MetroCard Van will be in the Key Food parking lot across from Addabbo’s Rockaway Beach office, located at 88-08 Rockaway Beach Boulevard, from 10:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. Then the van will then make its way to Maspeth Federal Savings Bank, located at 58-16 69th Street, to service people from 1:30 p.m. to 3:30 p.m.

Unfortunately, due to the COVID-19 pandemic, New York City Transit representatives at the MetroCard Van WILL NOT be accepting monetary, credit or debit card transactions at this time.

The services that will be available at the MetroCard Van include transferring MetroCard balances, exchanging a damaged Reduced-Fare MetroCard for a temporary replacement, report a stolen or missing Reduced-Fare card, getting assistance in applying for a Reduced-Fare card, and asking the team about any MetroCard-related issues.

“Now that the MTA is charging to use mass transit again, I am happy to be able to bring the MetroCard Van back into my district,” Addabbo said. “COVID-19 has taken its toll on our public transit system as well, and for everyone’s safety they cannot do transactions involving cash, credit or debit cards. We apologize for the inconvenience and hope residents can still use the other services available. I would like to thank NYCT and their team for bringing the MetroCard Van and their services to my constituents.”
