Phase Out of Free Student Metro Cards to Hurt Local Parents Pocketbooks

At $88 / month the cost of metro cards is not cheap but from past analysis my wife and I still get a pretty good deal. With the added possibility of having to buy two more such cards for our kids if the MTA does away with student metro cards I am not so sure without running the numbers again. As expected our usage brinigs the costs down but spending $350 plus on metro cards is nuts.

Local Subway Stop Renamed to Honor This Blog?

Before anyone goes issuing official cease and desist orders again for my illegal use of MTA logos, fonts, etc the above image was created on a retail site officially licensed by the MTA to produce personal use signage matching the signs in the NYCTA subway system.

Pretty cool site named Undergroud Signs. Worth checking out. Prices are a bit high to become a craze among purchasers but plenty of folks I am sure will consider it.
