Congressman Bob Turner Brings MetroCard Van To El Greco Parking Lot


Rep. Bob Turner

Congressman Bob Turner has arranged for the MTA’s MetroCard van to come to the parking lot of the El Greco Diner, 1821 Emmons Avenue on the corner of Sheepshead Bay Road, August 31 from 10:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m., to allow commuters to purchase and refill their regular and reduced-fair MetroCards (for seniors 65 and older) MetroCards.

An MTA representative will be on hand to answer any number of MetroCard-related questions, ranging from reduced-fair qualification to transfer procedure. Congressman Turner’s staff will also be on hand to answer and assist with constituents’ question regarding the Department of Veterans Affairs, Social Security Administration, the Internal Revenue Service, or any other federal agency.

According to Turner, “Most New Yorkers use MetroCards every day, but getting in touch with an MTA representative for any number of MetroCard related questions can require a long walk to the nearest information booth. This event will provide local residents with a convenient location to ask an MTA representative MetroCard related questions, resolve any issues they may be having, and refill or purchase MetroCard.”

For additional information, contact Turner’s Brooklyn district office, 1733 Sheepshead Bay Road, at (718) 426-5000.

    My hero. Looks like the nobel prize is coming to brooklyn baby!

  • The MetroCard BUS is based in Brooklyn (out of the Gleason Depot); why can the bus not be used within Brooklyn? (The bus offers more services than the van.)
