MTA To Upgrade MetroCard Machines This Saturday

The MTA will be upgrading MetroCard machines on Saturday.

That means commuters will only be able to use cash starting at midnight through 6 a.m. Saturday.

Due to a system software upgrade, MetroCard machines will accept cash only from 12:01AM to 6AM on Saturday, Feb. 10. Personnel will be on-hand in stations to assist customers without cash, if necessary, and anyone may call 511 or use a Help Point w/any questions.

Attempts to make the change last weekend led to complaints about the lack of notice.

The software upgrade will impact all MetroCard vending machines, including PATH stations and airports.
