WESTCHESTER COUNTY, N. Y. – MetroCards purchased before Hurricane Sandy struck will not be refunded, the MTA announced Monday.
“The decision was made over this weekend,” said MTA spokesperson Aaron Donovan. “This is the same reaction we took after Hurricane Irene.”
Donovan said that October MetroCards were allowed to be used until Nov. 5, which means it is not “purely non-refundable.” He also said people rode free on subways and commuter rails Nov. 1 and Nov 2.
The MTA system was struck hard by Hurricane Sandy, but much of its service has reopened.
