In 2010 MTA introduced new design for metrocard purchased at JFK connection subway stations: Sutphin Blvd/Archer Ave and Howard Beach. The run of this metrocard is 10 million. However, since then MTA issued the same card with variations color, font, phone number and etc.






Earth Day 2009

In repetition of 2008 Earth Day celebration in 2009 MTA issued series of 4 metrocards with very similar design as in 2008. More over, MTA used the same images on those metrocards as last year , only text is different and size of images used. Another difference is that this year it was 4 metrocards and last year series contains of 5 cards.

Another promotional metrocard to push people to use public transportation to get to sport events, in this case to Giants stadium in New Jersey at Meadowlands.

It looks like that card was in short supply, it could be that it was a very limited edition.
