Metrocard Bonus Calculator

For whatever reason, this website cracked me up.

http://www.metrocardbonuscalculator.com/

You tell it the balance you have on your metrocard, what your goal is for a round fare (based on regular fare, senior fares, express bus, etc) and the maximum amount you want to add. It calculates how much you need to add to get to a round number.

What an awesome website. I'll now know what to do with that stray $0.05 on my card!

Round to a nickel, not to a penny. Otherwise, yes, you can put strange numbers on the card.

Has there been a revision to our currency or did you mean $8.65?
