The fare is $2.75. (I thought it was $2.50 oh well)
Reduced fare is $1.35
A 7 day unlimited metrocard (good for bus and train) is $31.
That's good for 11.27 rides which makes no sense.
So let's say 12 rides. After 12 rides you are essentially not paying anymore.
In a typical week, Daya needs 16 rides total including weekends and nights.
This number could be (and often is) higher if we go out etc.
12 of those rides are during the week for dance and school.
Tuesday and Wednesday I pick her up at night and we take the train.
The student pass won't work because of the time and it is only good for the bus.
So Daya needs 12 rides that would qualify for reduced fare.
1.35 x 12 = $16.20 = weekly amount I would pay for reduced fare rides.
2.75 x 6 (regular fare rides she needs) = $16.50
$16.20 + 16.50 = $32.70
It costs me MORE to use the reduced fare pass!!
Sorry for all the Math and fuck common core too!
