If you choose the 7-Day Unlimited Ride MetroCard, you may travel by subway and all local busses an unlimited amount of time during 7 calendar days.

Important: When you buy the New York MetroCard via my website you will pay more for the card than when you buy the card in New York. Normally it’s cheaper to buy tickets online via NewYorkCity.uk. This is, however, not the case with the MetroCards. All cards are shipped by registered mail for safety and security, but that comes with a cost. This service is only for people that wish to have their MetroCards before they are in New York and don’t mind paying for this service. Eric.
