Buy MTA New York Metro-North train tickets online or in person at a station booth or at a Metro Card vending machine. Single-ride tickets are only available at Metro Card vending machines.
To purchase train fare most efficiently, the purchaser must decide how much he plans to travel on the Metro-North train. Single-ride tickets only take the passenger one way, cost $2.75, and are only available at a Metro Card vending machine. If a person plans to ride the train more than once, it may be more cost effective to buy a pay-per-ride Metro Card or an unlimited Metro Card. All of these options are available on the MTA website under the heading Fares and Metro Card.
