Deadline to activate unlimited MetroCards approaches

The deadline to activate 30-day unlimited MetroCards is quickly approaching.

Commuters have until Feb. 8 to activate unlimited MetroCards purchased before Dec 30.

Although the cards will expire next week, riders can still get a refund by asking a station agent for a pre-paid envelope to mail it in.

Last month, the price of unlimited MetroCards increased from $89 to $104.
