Doesn't look pretty, but it does the job. Just like the subway.
CoronaMetro was created in March to quickly get MetroCards from the newly working-from-home to essential workers.
With your help, we’ve gotten over $400k worth of MetroCards to people in need across the tri-state area (and even a few in PA, for good measure).
