WELP, WE FINALLY HEARD BACK ABOUT METRO CARD REFUNDS

When the MTA closed the subway systems down at 7PM the night before Hurricane Sandy, we all collectively wondered the same thing: Will holders of unlimited Metro cards get some of their money back?

The answer, as it turns out, is a big fat NO.

According to the New York Times, "The agency said on Monday that it would not provide refunds to riders who purchased 30- or 7-day unlimited MetroCards before Hurricane Sandy. An official with the authority, who requested anonymity because he was not authorized to discuss the decision, said processing refunds would have been a logistical nightmare. The authority declined to explain the decision further."

The NY Post estimated that if anyone with an unlimited card HAD been reimbursed, it would have been for $10.41 -- almost enough for each of us to see Twilight: Breaking Dawn Part 2 Argo this weekend.
