The MTA decided on Friday that it would not reimburse riders for their monthly unlimited MetroCards, despite more than three days without any subway service due to Hurricane Sandy, according to the New York Post.
“There will be no extensions on MetroCards,” spokesman Adam Lisberg told the paper.
Parts of the R, 1 and A trains are currently still down, while L service between Manhattan and Brooklyn was only recently restored after being down for 10 days. The N train to Coney Island was down for 11 days.
The Post says that the MTA gave two free days after restoring very limited service on Nov. 1, but that wasn’t much help to riders in lower Manhattan, north Brooklyn and much of Queens, where subway lines were still down.
“I would love to get something in return, especially because my commute to work was terrible,” Ingrid Marshall, a 4/5 rider, told the Post.
Long Island Rail Road and Metro-North riders got a break, however, as their monthly cards were extended through Nov. 5.
The MTA still plans to raise fares in March. There will be a public hearing in December on the matter.
