If a student lives within the five boroughs of the City of New York, he is eligible to receive a MetroCard, a card for free travel on bus or subway. Students who need to make more than one transfer in each direction should see Mrs. Porco in Administration ASAP during orientation. MetroCards are distributed at orientation.
Metro-North Railroad Student Discount Tickets
Any upperclassman that has previously taken Metro North will automatically receive his September commutation ticket in the mail by mid to late August. Incoming freshmen who signed up to take Metro-North at registration have been submitted for entry into the Metro-North Mail & Ride System. They will receive two emails directly from Metro North by mid-August with information on how to log in and begin receiving tickets. Please look for these emails and be sure to check your spam folder.
Tickets are mailed by August 15th. Please contact Mrs. Porco if you do not receive your ticket by August 27th. If you register after August 15th, you must purchase a monthly ticket for September. The form can be picked up at the lobby desk.
If you did not receive the emails, please call Metro-North at 212- 340-3288. If you did not register to take Metro-North please contact Mrs. Porco at firstname.lastname@example.org. Fordham Prep enters student information into the Metro-North system to verify that he is a current student. All other questions should be directed to Metro-North at 212-340-3288.
