I recently took the air train to Jamaica, NYC then metro to uptown. I paid all the fees by adding $26 to my card - to be ready for later rides. After getting to my hotel I went out to ride the metro and the card had a zero balance. I was confused, but added $22 more to be set for 3 days. What happened to my $26?
My understanding is - $7.50 for airport, $5 hidden fee, $2.50 for one way ride to midtown. So why did the balance become 0? My charge said Airtrain for Airtrain only. Can someone explain?
