MetroCards going green — bikes still greener

Everybody knows MetroCards are blue and yellow. (This hasn’t changed since the 1990s, when MetroCards were introduced with a slightly different, blue color scheme.) But hey – for a short time they will be green!

As for me, I’ve begun my annual spring tradition of riding my bike to work as much as possible, to avoid buying a monthly MetroCard (now $81). Public transit is very green, but bikes are greener. So there!

See a picture of the green MetroCard on Gothamist.
