No true new yorker would be caught dead with spare change on their metrocard!

We've all been there. It's time to refill your Metrocard again, but the MTA keeps changing the rules. Optimize your travel dollars with Metroptimizer.

The app is simple enough for a cat to use (a really smart cat who understands how to use a touch screen). It's thanks to our patented (patent pending) 3 step process.
1. Put in how much money is on your metrocard.
2. Pick whether you're using a new card or a refill.
3. The app tells you how much money to put on so you don't end up with change on the metrocard.
4. Why are you still reading? I told you there were 3 steps.

Enjoy a nice service free of charge from people who want to make sure that you get the most bang for your $2.75. (Dang MTA, stop changing the fare...)

What’s New

Version 3.2

New York City updated their fares, so we did too!

Instead of an 11% bonus, you'll now only get 5%.

Don't complain to me though, I'm just a robot, made only to follow orders. [¬º-°]¬

So glad I found this app!!!

This app is so awesome. Saves me the brain damage of trying to figure out what amounts the stupid machines will allow me to add to my card to add up to an actual ride without getting random bonus amounts!!!!!!!! If you rate this app anything less than 5 stars you don't understand how to use it.

Makes things faster than using a calculator

Funny about the reviewer complaining about personal attacks from the developer. Signed the guy who regularly uses this app who apparently can't do math. Gotta love people who complain about free things.

Easy, Useful, Perfect

I love this app and I use it every time I put money on my Metrocard. The interface is straightforward and accurate, and I’m never left with random balances of unusable amounts. Don’t leave home without Metroptimizer!
