MetroCard discount may disappear

The MTA may soon eliminate a cost-saving discount on MetroCards.

The Transit Agency is considering getting rid of the 7 percent discount on purchases of $10 MetroCards.

It's a 70 cents savings for every $10.

Critics say eliminating the discount is no different than a fare hike.

The MTA will hold hearings in November on its plan to raise fares and tolls.
