An MTA Mobile Sales Van is coming to Fresh Meadows for two days this September, Assemblywoman Nily Rozic announced.

The mobile van will be in the Fresh Meadows Shopping Center, located at Horace Harding Expressway and 188th Street, on Monday, September 14, and Monday, September 28, from 1 to 2:30 p.m.

Services that are offered include applying for the Reduced Fare program, purchasing and refilling MetroCards, exchanging damaged reduced-fare MetroCards, and reporting a lost or stolen reduced-fare MetroCard.

Seniors or people with disabilities applying for the Reduced Fare program should bring proof of age documents, birth certificate, driver’s license, Medicare card or valid state ID or passport.

“It is oftentimes difficult for residents to access MTA services,” Rozic said. “That is why I am bringing the MetroCard Mobile Van to the neighborhood to make it more convenient for commuters to talk with a trained representative about their concerns or questions.”
