Metro-North Railroad customers who buy tickets with the MTA eTix app, can take part in a pilot program of promotional fares designed to encourage railroad ridership. Metro North officials say this is being done in part to provide ticketing options more closely aligned with the evolving needs of those with flexible work schedules.
There's a new 20-trip ticket, which will offer 20% off the comparable 20 peak one-way fares. Monthly tickets, which are currently discounted between 48% and 61% of the price of a comparable number of one-way peak tickets, will be discounted by an additional 10%.
The MTA has announced that it will keep Metro-North fares off-peak at all times, through at least February 28th.
