Change for the Better

Isn’t it annoying when there is a little money left on your Metrocard that isn’t enough for the fare,and there is no way to retrieve it?

Each year, $52 million is lost when those cards are replaced while there is still a value remaining.  Metro Change,  is a new system designed to take that lost change and donate it charity.

Designed as kiosks to be placed at subway stations throughout the city,Metro Change allows riders to swipe their cards and have the remaining value recorded and put into a central fund. The cards are then taken for recycling.

Each month, the central fund is converted into dollars and donated to charity.

The Metro Change creators are currently seeking people to help make this platform a reality. Check out their website for more information.
