I'm not from NY, but that is a common thing in public transit. Usually called a "Pass" it entitles the bearer to free passage on the New York transit System. There are other cities that do the same thing.Never use Force! Get a Bigger Hammer.

WOW im from NYC and i have never seen that MTA card i didnt even know that card was available for FDNY guys. MTA is usually the best bet to use just because its hard to travel or Park for that matter in the city.

For some reason the picture wont load, but I dont have any idea what is being talked about. We dont ride free unless we have our bunker gear with us (ie, getting detailed to another house).Proud East Coast Traditionalist.

Its called a MetroCard. The MTA will offer discounts or in some cases a free ride on subways, Long Island Rail Road and Metro North to students, municipal workers and first responders.Fortune does not change men; it unmasks them.

On a sorta related note...3 friends and me were in NYC and had just visited the WTC site and were hopping a subway back to the airport and as we were about to scan our metro cards a subway employee noticed our FD t-shirts and swiped us in with her card and said ff's don't pay to ride from ground zero or something to that effect. We thought that was very cool....just wanted to share and see if anyone had any similar experiences.
