Assemblywoman Stacey Pheffer Amato (D-South Queens) announced last Thursday that she will be hosting an event sponsored by the MTA later this summer.

Two MetroCard vans will be at separate locations in Howard Beach and Far Rockaway on Aug. 31. Residents can use these vans to purchase standard, senior or other reduced-fare MetroCards.

The reason for this event, according to Pheffer Amato, is to allow access to these cards without having to go to a train station.

“It’s great to have options to get a MetroCard without having to climb a flight of stairs to a train station,” said Pheffer Amato. “Especially for seniors and disabled folks.”

The two vans will be at 82-35 153 Ave., Howard Beach from 10 a.m. to noon and at 2-43 Beach 20 St., Far Rockaway from 1 p.m. to 3 p.m.

“More and more people are taking advantage of mass transit,” said Pheffer Amato. “This is just one great step in a long push to bring real mass transit access to everyone in South Queens.”
