Please note that you will require additional documentation to qualify. If you are 65 years of age or older, bring a document stating your birthday. This includes a birth certificate, a picture ID with age or date of birth, or a Medicare card. If you are disabled, you will need to fill out our physician verification form or present a Medicare card.
The cost for an MTA ID card is $2.00 for residents and $10.00 for non-residents.
