To better ensure the security of ticket transactions, Metro-North ticket machines have been enabled with a chip reading function.
If you purchase your tickets with a chip enabled card, please follow the on-screen instructions and pin pad, keep your card inserted until the chip is read in order to complete the transaction. You can also follow the directions posted at your machine.
See http://web.mta.info/mnr/pdf/01-06-20_TVM_chipUpgrade.pdf for full details.
Metro-North tickets can also be purchased at any open ticket office and via MTA eTix on our mobile ticketing app. Please visit new.mta.info/mta-etix
to learn more. We hope you enjoy this new security enhancement for your ticket purchases.
