The MTA has made $10,841,000 off the $1 MetroCard fee since the surcharge for a new card was instituted in March.

The Daily News reports that the fee is expected to generate $24 million for the entire year, and $28 million next year; it will also save the MTA $3.8 million it costs to print 60 million MetroCards.

However, all that cash is offset by a $11 million reduction in "fare media liability," which is jargon for "money the MTA makes because you didn't use the entire value of your MetroCard."

What will the MTA do with all that cash? Countdown clocks? Platform A/C? Open up that brew pub with their college buddies? Repairs? Repairs.
